Plant biotechnology and genetics are designed to inform and inspire the coming generation of biotechnologists about plants and genetics. It explores different contemporary techniques and technologies where tissue culture and genetic engineering produce modified plants with improved characteristics as a result. These tools, however, can increase the future of plant biotechnology and crop genetics. The production of various other bioproducts can also be done that can be highly beneficial for human health and the environment. It is widely practiced for crop improvement and sustainability.
Along with that, reverse breeding technologies are also helping to provide the new cultivators with several means of accelerating breeding to combat challenges that occur due to climate changes. In most recent times, biotechnology advances are taking place at the microscopic level within the membranes of cells. In the coming future, scientists will use all these to manipulate cells with increased control, along with editing of DNA and synthesizing the genomes.
Focused on the basics and processes, this book teaches plant biology with new biotechnology tools and advances, plant cells and their structure and function, system biology and genome, plant disease resistance, plant tissue culture, and chloroplast biology. Every chapter is discussed using plant biotechnology and genetics with summary and discussion questions mentioned at the back. The book can be highly beneficial for the students or individuals who want to gain insight into plant biotechnology and its other genetic aspects.
