    I would guess it may have something to do with just the difference between chromosomes and plasmids. A plasmid is a circular loop of DNA and houses the genome of bacteria. Chromosomes however, are linear strands of DNA. So a plasmid mediated trait would be one derived from plasmids, whereas chromosome mediated traits originate from chromosomes.
    But if we hope for what we do not yet have, then we wait for it patiently.
