Description

Genetic engineering has opened the doors of a new era where greater understanding of genetic structure, composition and expression has led to the manipulation of genomes for a desired product or trait. Transgenic plant technology is a growing field worldwide and Transgenic Technology Based Value Addition in Plant Biotechnology discusses the principles, methodology and applications of transgenic technologies.

With step-by-step methods on genome editing techniques and a range of potential applications, from improving crop yield to increasing therapeutic efficacy, this book is a one-stop reference for plant gene editing technologies. It will be of particular interest to researchers interested in plant biotechnology and plant genetics, as well as agricultural scientists and those concerned with medicinal plants.
