About this book

Considering the rapid pace with which biotechnology has been advancing in its progress, it comes as no surprise that plant pathology today has undergone vast changes. The study of plant diseases, their causes and the changes they produce in the cells, tissues and organs has been greatly aided by the continual enhancement of biotechnology principles and processes, particularly that of genetic engineering.

This book is an attempt in the process to provide readers with a relevant book which acquaints them with the current developments and advances in the field of plant pathology and biotechnology, particularly within the context of the widening scope of such arenas as biochemistry. Emphasising upon the principles, techniques and processes associated with it, the text gives space to covering critical perspectives which look into the future prospects, challenges and advantages offered by these trends.
