About this book

This book was first published in 1985. For those working in molecular biology, this book describes techniques in plant genetic research and the practical application of genetic engineering to important crop plants such as the potato. The various chapters detail methods used for the genetic modification of plants, including protoplast fusion and the use of Agrobacterium and viruses as vectors for plant genes. The types of agricultural and industrial processes that will be improved by these technologies are indicated throughout the book. The contributors to this volume have prepared a comprehensive and pertinent bibliography that is a key to the literature. Their scientific reports will enlighten advanced students, research workers and technicians in botany, biochemistry and biotechnology. All scientists in plant molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and agriculture should find this book a valuable aid in their understanding of current techniques, principles and applications in plant genetic engineering.
