  • ABOUT THE BOOK:

    The book provides background knowledge on the molecular biology of plants and a comprehensive description of plant biotechnology. It is in three parts. Part A deals with an overview of Plant Molecular Biology. Part B is concerned with Plant Tissue Culture. Part C is about Plant Genetic Engineering and Biotechnological  Applications.

    Several transgenic applications dealt with in detail are in areas of engineering plants for stress tolerance, metabolic engineering of plants, transplastomic technology, crop protection, and antisense technology in plants. One of the highlights of this book is that it presents the concepts of both plant molecular biology and plant biotechnology.
