Recent advances in the development of transgenic plants have revolutionized our concepts of sustainable food production, cost-effective alternative energy strategies, microbial biofertilizers and biopesticides, and disease diagnostics through plant biotechnology. As a result, a number of transgenic plants have been developed with improved traits. With the advancement of plant biotechnology, many of the customary approaches are out of date. This new two-volume set, Plant Biotechnology, provides a plethora of current knowledge on new as well as fresh approaches that are necessary to address biological problems in plant food production. The volumes provide an informative tour of plant biotechnology, covering the basics of biotechnology to recent advances, taking a thorough look at applications as well. The editors have brought together a respected group of contributors who address the most recent techniques and their applications in plant biotechnology.

Volume 1 covers the principles, techniques, and applications while Volume 2 delves into transgenics, stress management, and biosafety issues.

The volumes share recent information related to recent methods of genetic transformation, gene silencing, development of transgenic crops, biosafety issues, microbial biotechnology, oxidative stress, plant disease diagnostics and management, and more. Broken into subsections, the two volumes cover:

History, scope and importance of plant biotechnologyPlant tissue cultureTechniques in molecular biologyMolecular markers and QTL mappingGenetic transformationGene silencing in plantTransgenic crops and biosafetyMicrobial biotechnologyOxidative stressPlant disease diagnostics and management

This two-volume set will be a valuable resource for research and university libraries as well as for the many students engaged in plant biotechnology studies as well as faculty and researchers.
