Improved plants are necessary to meet human needs. Agrobacterium-mediated transformation is the most common method used to rewire plant capabilities. For plant gene delivery, DNA constructs are assembled into binary T-DNA vectors that rely on broad host range origins for bacterial replication. Here we present pLX vectors, a set of mini binary T-DNA plasmids suitable for Type IIS restriction endonuclease- and overlap-based assembly methods. pLX vectors include replicons from compatible broad host range plasmids. Simultaneous usage of pBBR1- and RK2-based pLX vectors in a two-plasmid/one-Agrobacterium strain strategy allowed multigene delivery to plants. Adoption of pLX vectors will facilitate routine plant transformations and targeted mutagenesis, as well as complex part and circuit characterization.
