An effective method of Vaccinium vitis-idaea L. genetic transformation has been elaborated. In this method the type of the explant, the vir-gene inductors, the explants’ sensitivity to selective and bacteriostatic antibiotics, and the strategy of the transformants selection have been defined. Transgenic plants of Vaccinium vitis-idaea L. (Red Pearl cultivar) have been received for the first time.

Keywords: Vaccinium vitis-idaea L., Agrobacterium tumefaciens, genetic transformation, expression gene, PCR-analysis
