Genetic Engineering basics
Genetic engineering is only possible because the universal genetic code: DNA. Understanding this molecule and how it relates to proteins is essential for creating a successful transgenic plant.
If you are confident in your understanding of these genetic engineering basics, then you can move on to the next page to learn about the specific discovery of resistance genes to protect against oomycete diseases.
