Different selectable marker genes are used in the genetic transformation of plants, but the efficiency of these genes in the selection of transgenic plants is different. In this study, we have used two different selectable marker gene systems in an established chickpea transformation protocol, and have compared the effectiveness of each selection system based on transformation efficiency. Using the herbicide resistance bar gene, together with a low concentration of the selective agent phosphinothricin, results in greater transformation efficiency than using the antibiotic resistance nptII gene with a high concentration of the selective agent kanamycin. In addition, modification of the rooting media and the use of a grafting method further improved the transformation efficiency of both selection systems. The transformation efficiency using the nptII and bar genes as selectable markers was 0.37% and 4.3%, respectively.
