"This book is a highly readable compendium of comprehensive essays on the present-day state of agricultural plant biotechnology. Each chapter is written by experts from across the globe. The book begins with a discussion of the rationale for the use of biotechnology in agriculture. Plant Cell and Tissue Culture A Tool in Biotechnology. This is a book written by 3 authors Karl-Hermann Neumann, Ashwani Kumar and Jafargholi book provides a general introduction as well as a selected survey of key advances in the fascinating field of plant cell and tissue culture as a tool in biotechnology. Plant Biotechnology Journal, an Open Access journal, publishes high-impact original research and incisive reviews with an emphasis on molecular plant sciences and their applications through plant biotechnology. High Impact Factor: (in top 5 original research journals in plant sciences and number 1 Open Access journal in plant sciences). This book begins by laying the foundations for plant biotechnology by outlining the biological aspects including gene structure and expression, and the basic procedures in plant biotechnology of genomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics and proteomics.

  Covers new developments in plant research, safety and legislation aspects This book is essential reading for postgraduates and researchers in plant biotechnology and related sciences in Departments of Plant Science, Biotechnology, Bioscience, Environmental Science, Food Biosciences and Chemistry. This book is a valuable resource for plant physiologists, biochemists, plant scientists, genetic engineers, and evolutionary biologists.

Plant biotechnology is a set of techniques used to adapt plants for specific needs or opportunities. Situations that combine multiple needs and opportunities are common. For example, a single crop may be required to provide sustainable food and healthful nutrition, protection of the environment, and opportunities for jobs and income. Building on the success of its predecessor, Plant Biotechnology and Genetics, 2nd Edition explores contemporary techniques and applications of plant biotechnology to illustrate the tremendous potential for improving the food supply and changing our world. As an introductory text, its focus is on basic science and processes – guiding students 5/5(1). The word "biotechnology" was first used in to describe processes using living organisms to make a product or run a process, such as industrial fermentations. In fact, biotechnology began when humans started to plant their own crops, domesticate animals, ferment juice into wine, make cheese, and leaven bread.
