About this book

Plant biotechnology has come of age. Products obtained by genetically engineered methods, once limited to science fiction, have become a reality. This book is an outstanding synthesis of the current status of technology transfer from the laboratory to the marketplace. It discusses the use of genetically engineered crops, with the focus on biotechnology becoming commercially marketable. Technology Transfer of Plant Biotechnology addresses these important new products:


Technology Transfer: Biotechnology Information and the Federal Government. From Lab Bench to Marketplace: The Calgene FLAVR SAVRO Tomato. Biotechnological Applications of Inheritable and Inducible Resistance to Diseases in Plants. The Role ofAntifungal Metabolites in Biological Control of Plant Disease. Genetically Engineered Protection of Plants against Potyviruses. Negative Selection Markers for Plants. Considerations for Development and Commercialization of Plant Cell Processes andProducts. DNA Diagnostics in Horticulture. Commercial Applications of DNA Profiling by Amplification with Arbitrary Oligonucleotide Primers. Phylogenetic Relationships in the Tribe Triticeae. Isolation of Plant Peptide Transporter Genes from Arabidopsisby Yeast Complementation. Confocal Laser Scanning Light Microscopy with Optical Sectioning: Applications in Plant Science Research.
