Based on excellent platform and leading-edge technology, our experienced scientist team serves our customers with high-quality services.

Sweet potato, Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam., is an important food and industrial material crop in the world. It is also an alternative source of bio-energy as a raw material for fuel production. The improvement of this crop by conventional hybridization is limited because of its high male sterility, incompatibility and the hexaploid nature. Gene engineering, especially genetic transformation offers great potential for the improvement of sweet potato. Creative Biogene has established an efficient system of embryogenic suspension cultures for sweet potato genotypes especially for commercial cultivars. Using embryogenic suspension cultures of sweet potato, we have also established an efficient Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation system and obtained transgenic plants.
