Using Transgenics to Explore Plant Immunity

This website will guide you through the concept of using transgenics to explore plant immunity. You have probably heard about your own immune system and how it responds when you get sick, but plants need to stay healthy too! The field of transgenics has useful tools to help researchers study this complex system.

The most useful way to explore this information on your own is to start with the basics (Why plants matter, How plants defend themselves, and Research!) and then move your way through the steps of a plant research story. The continue button will always take you on this path!
