Genetic engineering is a robust instrument for crop development. Crop biotechnology earlier than 2001 used to be reviewed in Transgenic vegetation I-III, yet fresh advances in plant mobilephone and molecular biology have caused the necessity for brand spanking new volumes.

Transgenic vegetation IV offers with cereals, greens, root plants, herbs and spices. part I is an introductory bankruptcy at the impression of plant biotechnology in agriculture. part II makes a speciality of cereals (rice, wheat, maize, rye, pearl millet, barley, oats), whereas part III is directed to vegetable plants (tomato, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, chickpea, universal beans and cowpeas, carrot, radish). Root plants (potato, cassava, candy potato, sugar beet) are integrated in part IV, with herbs and spices (sweet and sizzling peppers, onion, garlic and comparable species, mint) in part V.

This quantity is a useful reference for plant breeders, researchers and graduate scholars within the fields of plant biotechnology, agronomy, horticulture, genetics and either plant telephone and molecular biology.
