Book Description

About The Books:-The Second edition of plant Biotechnology: the genetic manipulation of plants presents a balanced objective exploration of the technology behind genetic manipulation and the application of this technology to the growth and cultivation of plants. The book describes the techniques underpinning genetic manipulation in a clear lucid manner and makes extensive use of case studies to illustrate how this influential tool is used in practice. Throughout history humankind has pursued means to improve the yield of crop plants through selective plant breeding and hybridization. Today genetic manipulation provides a powerful tool for directing plant breeding. But how is genetic manipulation implemented? What benefits can it be offer? And what are the broader issues surrounding the use of this technology? Key themes and strategies are developed using appropriate case studies which place the science behind plant biotechnology in its broader agricultural context.
