Plant based Vaccines

The vaccines in which the desired genes that encode the antigen protein for specific disease are introduced into the genome of plant tissue by various methods are termed as plant-based vaccines. The most common procedures that are used to yield effective plant-based vaccines are Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer and Transformation via genetically modified plant virus. Though, growth in the field of science and technology established new approaches such as agro infiltration, biolistic, electroporation, polyethylene glycol treatment and sonication to replace the former methods.
