This invention addresses the problem of inserting foreign or nonative DNA into a cell and, most particularly, into a plant cell. The solution to this problem of DNA transfer set forth in this invention is the use of a polycationic compound and cationic liposomes which act synergistically to accomplish host cell transformation.
