The ability to regenerate plants from poplar cells cultured in vitro suggests that poplars may prove a valuable model system for the application of recombinant DNA technology to deciduous trees. We report here the transformation of a hybrid Populus trichocarpa X deltoides with two strains of Agrobacterium tumefaciens, as demonstrated by phytohormone autonomous growth, opine production, and Southern blot analysis.
