About this book

The Series Set offers a comprehensive review of the commercially relevant transgenic plants developed and presently utilized. Volumes 1-9 cover around 100 plant species, including all economic plants from crops to forest trees. Volume 10 is the master index volume. Each chapter covers one particular species (or sometimes group of closely related species) and the transgenic versions developed for that particular species.

This volume offers a complete description of the successfully developed transgenic plants for around 100 commercially relevant crops from fruits and vegetables to grains, industrial crops and forest tree species. It covers the transgenic techniques used in the molecular tailoring of traits relevant from an agricultural, medicinal and environmental point of view. It explores future developments, from desired traits to expected new technologies. It examines risks and concerns around the use of GM crops. It discusses public perception, industrial perspectives and political and economic consequences. It includes contributions from over 300 leading scientists from around the world. It provides a valuable and inclusive reference for students, researchers, scientists and industry professionals, studying and working on transgenic plants.
