Based on the comprehensive plant transformation and tissue culture platform established through years of experiences, scientists from Creative Biogene offer Medicago sativa and Medicago truncatula transformation service. Creative Biogene strives to produce a sufficient number of transgenic plants quickly and at minimum cost for academic and commercial.
Medicago truncatula and Medicago sativa have become model systems for legumes due to its relatively small stature, small genome (450–500 Mb), short generation time (about 3 months), and ability to reproduce both by outcrossing and selfing. Besides, Medicago sativa (Alfalfa) has been widely grown as a forage crop due to its good quality characteristics and high adaptability. Glyphosate-resistant alfalfa has become the first deregulated and commercialized transgenic forage crop, which has shown clear advantages in year yield and forage quality comparing with traditional alfalfa. Thus, a rapid transformation system of M. truncatula and M. sativa will facilitate the basic function research of legume plants like soybean, pea and cowpea, as well as increase the yield of forage crop.
