Crop Transformation

Providing the wider research community with access to a range of crop transformation and genome editing resources.

The Crop Transformation Platform at the John Innes Centre offers transformation and genome editing in a range of species including wheat, barley and Brassica crops.


We are unique in that we can offer a complete resource from experimental design and construct assembly through to transformation and screening of the plants developed. We can also provide training, ready prepared standard constructs, and help with grant proposals.


Our platform can help to advance research in many areas of plant science by providing functional characterisation of genes of interest and by providing knock-out mutants using CRISPR/Cas9 based technologies.
