As increasing global population and continuing economic development ensure the need for further production and cultivation of maize, the necessity of the application of transgenic technology to this model species and crop plant grows steadily. In Transgenic Maize: Methods and Protocols, experts in the various disciplines of the field contribute readily reproducible protocols covering such topics as transformation methods, transgenic maize in research, the analysis of transgenic plants, and breeding with transgenes. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters present brief introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and easy to use, Transgenic Maize: Methods and Protocols will greatly aid researchers wishing to use these procedures in their own laboratories, and will provide readers with a better understanding of the experiments being performed by cooperators or fee-for-service labs.

Contains a comprehensive set of methods for developing transgenic maize varieties, including construct design, transformation, analysis, and breeding

Includes methods in tissue culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, and agronomy

Presents data from case studies of research with transgenic maize

Appendices provide examples of regulatory paperwork required by the US government for experimental production of transgenic maize

Displays full-color plates to illustrate the utility of fluorescent marker proteins

Allows readers to compare transformation methods used by public and private sector laboratories
