The Ralph M. Parsons Plant Transformation Facility at UC Davis provides routine plant transformation services for the plant species listed in the table below for clients within the continental United States.
Please note that the facility’s preference is not to transform plasmids into Agrobacterium for client orders. Our preference is for clients to provide the facility with engineered Agrobacterium cultures containing their gene of interest.

** Many other cultivars can be transformed, including a wide range of wild tomato relatives-contact the facility for details
*** Certain restrictions apply- please contact the facility for details. We are using the GRF-GIF system for CRISPR-related transformation. For regular transformation we are doing co-transformations with a GRF-GIF vector without selectable marker (provided by the Facility).
+Please note, if requesting kanamycin selection for tomato, the nptii gene must be driven by the nos or mas promoter, not by 35s. For glufosinate the bar must be driven by the 35s promoter.
Please note, we can supply seeds of Moneymaker, T5 and Microtom, but for all other cultivars, the client needs to provide 200 seeds per construct.
