Research Support Facilities

Plant Transformation Facility

The Plant Transformation Facility, located in B22 Weill Hall on the Cornell campus, is charged with supporting the plant biology research of Cornell faculty by making transgenic plants of time-consuming or hard-to-transform species with a particular focus on New York State crops. With the explosion of interest in gene editing technologies, much of the work involves CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome modification.
