Transgenic plants are plants into which one or more genes from another species have been introduced into the genome, using genetic engineering processes. Techniques include the biolistic method—in which a heavy metal is coated with plasmid DNA is shot into cells—and Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation. Genetically modified crops (GM crops) are plants used in agriculture, …
