Learn to genetically engineer plants using agrobacterium! This kit allows you to engineer the leaves of the Nicotiana tabacum plant turning them red.

How does it work?

Plasmids inserted into agrobacterium can move into plant leaves through horizontal gene transfer. The red pigment takes 2-4 days to express in successfully engineered cells.
