Technical Abstract: This presentation discusses the research needed to develop the Recombinase Mediated Cassette Exchange (RMCE) technology as a tool for genome manipulation. Explanations are provided as to how genetic engineering of plants with novel traits can be applied. The definition of a “GAANTRY” and how this project has been developed to facilitate building of large complicated T-DNAs will be addressed. A schematic representation will be provided to demonstrate how this novel system can be used to ‘Stack’ genes and why this is necessary for complication genetic engineering practices. Finally, the concept of modularity and how the system can be adapted over time to newer genetic engineering techniques.
