LifeScience Moment: LifeScience Moment: Frostban was sprayed on an acre of strawberry plants marking the first release of genetically altered bacteria in the US.
On April 24, 1987, Advanced Genetic Sciences (AGS) sprayed Frostban on an acre of
strawberry plants in Brentwood, CA, marking the first release of genetically altered bacteria
in the U.S.
Stephen Lindow at the University of Wisconsin–Madison identifed the bacterium as
P. syringae, and in 1977, discovered the mutant ice-minus strain. In 1983, AGS applied
