Visiting Scientists


Scientists from all over the world come to the Plant Transformation Facility to learn transformation techniques of maize and soybean as well as molecular analysis skills. Resources are limited for training scientists, but we do so as often as we are able. If you are interested in learning from us, please contact Kan Wang for further details.
