Description

Genetic Engineering and Genome Editing for Zinc Biofortification of Rice provides the first single-volume, comprehensive resource on genetic engineering approaches, including novel genome editing techniques, that are carried out in rice, a staple crop for much of the world’s population. Dietary zinc deficiency can lead to negative health outcomes, including increased risk of stunting, respiratory diseases, diarrhea, mortality during childhood, and preterm births in pregnancy. By providing a complete view of the need for zinc biofortification in rice, sections in this book discuss state-of-the-art scientific advances, and then go further, placing them in their proper scientific, regulatory and socioeconomic contexts. While zinc biofortification can be achieved through conventional breeding, genetic engineering and agronomic practices, this is the first reference to bring all the latest insights and understanding to a comprehensive resource that is based on real-world experience and targeted applications.

Key Features

  • Compiles state-of-the-art information to allow fast-track understanding and application of zinc content improvement
  • Discusses multiple strategic and methodology approaches
  • Includes discussions on the socioeconomic implications of improved rice nutritional value

Readership

University graduate students (PhD), researchers and educators; Libraries and professionals of universities and various kinds of institutes focused on Agriculture, environmental science, plant science (crop improvement, plant breeding and genetics, plant molecular biology, plant protection, quality improvement)
