Transgenic Plant through Genetic Engineering
Genetic engineering has given us opportunity to manipulate genes for getting our desired plants or animals. With the advent of modern genetic engineering we have overcome various problems and it has given us transgenic plants that contain our desired characteristics. Transgenic plants are plants which have a single or multiple genes transferred from a different species. In the natural processes DNA from another species can be integrated into a plant's genome. The term "transgenic plants" refers to plants which are created in a laboratory using recombinant DNA technology. The aim of creating transgenic plants is to design plants which have specific characteristics by using artificial insertion technique of genes from other species.

Protoplast fusion, embryo rescue or mutagenesis is the in vitro techniques used by Classical plant breeders to generate diversity and produce plants which would not ordinarily exist in nature. In the traditional breeding method to generate plants with DNA from two species by non-recombinant methods are more familiar and serve important roles in agriculture than other. It can protect crops from pests and help land and water to be used more efficiently. There are many methods for introducing genes into plants. Plant cells are infected with plasmids as vectors carrying the desired gene from another cell. Microscopic pellets containing the gene are blasted directly into the cell. Somatic tissues of plants can be transformed in the laboratory with the desired gene.

The transgene will be incorporated into the pollen and eggs which will pass on to the next generation. Transgenic plants have been frequently developed for the following reason: disease resistance, longer shelf life, herbicide resistance, non-biological stress resistances, pest resistance and nutritional improvement . Transgenic plants have major role in ecosystems which is one of the greatest concern. Bacillus thuringiensis is a bacterium which is pathogenic for a number of insect pests. It can produce toxin protein. The toxin protein producing gene can be introduced into the genome of the plant through recombinant DNA methods in the plant cell. The plant can protect insect pests.

Resistance gene provides protection against plant viruses from another plant have been directly introduced into crop plants such as tobacco, tomatoes, and potatoes through r DNA technology. During rice milling husk is removed which is the source of Beta-carotene. Recently researchers have become successful in incorporating three trans-genes into rice that enabled the plants to manufacture beta-carotene in their endosperm.

2,4-D is the most common chemical for killing weed used in the field but it is not environmentally friendly. In that case resistance gene from newer herbicide have been incorporated into some crop plants that enables them to bloom even when exposed to the weed killer. Salt tolerance can be engineered into crops which are intolerant of saline soils. As an example transgenic tomato where trans-gene is highly expressed sodium/proton anti-proton pump that keep apart excess sodium in the vacuole of leaf cells. So Genetic engineering plays pivotal role in developing and boost up the variety of plant. Here is a caution about the proper manipulation of gene. Without proper manipulation of gene genetic engineering will be bane, not boon for the people.

Transgenic plants describes the basic of the genetic engineering modification for the agricultural purposes that they play different roles in the characteristics and in a market. In the discussion of the various consequences and safety cultivation biopharmaceutical aspects of the transgenic crops has also been addressed. Transgenic plants have been engineered to posses several desirable traits.

The production of transgenic vegetable was first initiated by Panchanan Maheswari by the invention of Bromato, which has both the characteristics of brinjal and tomato. The production of transgenic plants is very much helpful and also helps to produce the plants with the desired traits.

The results of the blood test could help to detect the Disease of Celiac. If blood test has been in positive for the certain antibodies, an upper endoscopy could be happened to assess possible effects to the small intestine, more importantly the part of duodenum. If the villi happened to be flattened, doctors specialized in diet , would collaboratively work with the patient to make gluten free diet. This would be just evolution process of going through the tests.

I have a doubt
According to some studies there were some ethical issues &some health issues regarding the transgenic animals,how about the transgenic plants?do all transgenic plants experiments were succeed??
