Overview

During the first decade of the 20th century, the plant disease crown gall was found to be caused by the soil bacteria later called A. tumefaciens. Soon researchers realized that the disease was actually a cancer of the plant that the bacteria somehow induced. That puzzle remained until the advent of molecular biology, when it became clear that the bacteria was altering the plant's RNA or DNA. Here reprints of original articles, with comments by scientists, trace the study of the biology of A. tumefaciens, its applications in genetic engineering, DNA sequencing, and the biological control of crown gall. There is no index. Annotation © 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
