ABM Sharif Hossain and M. Musamma"Transgenic Plant Production using Different T-DNA Technologies as a Tool of Genetic Engineering", International Journal of Biotech Trends and Technology (IJBTT), V8(1): 28-35 January - March 2018, Published by Seventh Sense Research Group.


The review study was carried out from different research data to find out the innovative latest technology in the transgenic plant production and its application in Agriculture like plant, fruit and vegetables. Transgenic plant production using T-DNA transformation by tissue culture with Agrobacterium mediated media in wild potato, potato, tomato, maize, apple, sweet orange, stawberry etc. has been described well. Transgenic plant production applied by dip, swabbing, drip, injection in xylem, phloem tissue, stem, flower and ovary method has been exhibited as innovative from different research data. In addition to that transgenic melon and squish production have been highlighted from different innovative research data. Moreover, Transgenic okra and hard wood plant production by injection using Agrobacterium mediated gene. Finally it can be summarized that transgenic ornamental plant, flower, fruit and vegetable can be produced by using different technologies like in vitro cell or tissue culture of leave disc, shoot and root slice having different concentration of Agrobacterium tumefaciens (used as Ti plasmid and genomic DNA) media by injecting in the stem, xylem and phloem tissue, bud, flower, ovary as well as swabbing, dipping, dripping and micro spraying technologies.
