Gene targeting in Physcomitrella patens

Schaefer, Didier G.

In: Current Opinion in Plant Biology, 2001, vol. 4, no. 2, p. 143-150

Gene-targeting efficiency in the land plant Physcomitrella patens (Bryophyta) can only be compared with that observed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Sequencing programs and microbiological molecular genetic approaches are now being developed to unravel the precise function of plant genes.

    Summary
    Gene-targeting efficiency in the land plant Physcomitrella patens (Bryophyta) can only be compared with that observed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Sequencing programs and microbiological molecular genetic approaches are now being developed to unravel the precise function of plant genes. Physcomitrella patens, as the new ‘green yeast’, might well become a major tool for functional genomic studies of multicellular eukaryotes.
