President’s Report

The results of the election of officers (Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and Section Officers) are in and I would like to thank all who offered their services to the society.

The transitions to the newly elected officers will occur at the Friday night Board of Directors meeting just before the annual meeting in San Diego.

The maize Agrobacterium-mediated transformation process normally takes about 10 to 15 weeks from embryo infection and co-cultivation to when “T0” plants can be sent to the greenhouse (GH). At Corteva AgriscienceTM, a research team recently developed a new transformation method that utilizes the maize transcription factors Babyboom (BBM) and Wuschel2 (WUS2) to stimulate direct transgenic embryo formation and plant regeneration.
