Agricultural Biotechnology

"Genetically modified foods have the potential to solve many of the world's hunger and malnutrition problems, and to help protect and preserve the environment by increasing yield and reducing reliance upon chemical pesticides and herbicides. Yet there are many challenges ahead for government, especially in the areas of safety testing, regulation, international policy and food labeling.

This book is the study of techniques methods and processes that are adopted and applied to plants generally for genetic manipulation for attaining plant varieties with advantageous characteristics that have greater utility in industrial agricultural chemical pharmaceutical and other purpose.

The present book is a unique concise up to date resource offering reader an innovative and valuable presentation of plant biotechnology. It covers all fundamental aspects and applications of plant biotechnology. It outlines the relevance of plant biotechnology to agriculture and the importance of regulatory and bio safety issues before public acceptance of genetically modified food. The book will be valuable to researchers, biologists, scientists and advanced students of botany agriculture pharmacy biotechnology and chemical engineering."
