Plant Biotechnology comprehensively covers different aspects of the subject based on the latest outcomes of this field. Topics such as tissue culture, nutrient medium, micronutrients, macronutrients, solidifying agents/supporting systems, and growth regulators have been dealt with extensively. The book also discusses in detail plant genetic engineering for productivity and performance, resistance to herbicides, insect resistance, resistance to abiotic stresses, molecular marker aided breeding, molecular markers, types of markers, and biochemical markers. Different aspects of important issues in plant biotechnology, commercial status and public acceptance, biosafety guidelines, gene flow and IPR have been also thoroughly examined. This book caters to the needs of graduate, postgraduate and researchers.
