2000He is a particle bombardment apparatus designed to
assist researchers in genetic transformation experiments.
Using indigenously developed and cost-effective technology,
it is already yielding excellent results in genetic transformation
of crops such as sorghum, millet, safflower, sunflower, castor
etc., in various reputed Indian institutions.
is an excellent tool to introduce useful genes into economically
important field crop species such as legumes, millet, cotton,
banana/plantain, rice, wheat, sorghum, barley, cassava, yam,
potato, maize as well as sweet potato, tulip, picea, abies,
castor etc. and animal cells too can be transformed. This
technique is particularly useful in monocotyledonous crops
and is a promising method for the development of superior
plants, improve the productivity of recalcitrant plant species
such as most cereals, soybean etc., insect resistance, nutritional
quality and to enhance already existing traits.
units are currently being used in the laboratories of national
and international crops research institutes, universities
and the Indian institute of technology (IIT).
