    "This book provides a good entree into biotechnology and rice. . .The enduring strength of this book will be the context it will continue to provide for understanding subsequent research."
    --Science and Technology

    "The author has a strong and well-deserved reputation in the area of rice transformation, and the 'meat' of the book rather comprehensively presents the methods, explants, successes and failures, and limitations on data interpretation experienced in the field."
