With contributions from nearly internationally renowned experts in the field, this reference details advances in transgenic plant construction and explores the social, political, and legal aspects of genetic plant manipulation. It provides analyzes of the history, genetics, physiology, and cultivation of over 30 species of transgenic seeds, fruits, and vegetables. About this book. In the global area of transgenic crops reached million hectares, an fold increase since , making it the most rapidly adopted technology in the history of modern agriculture.
Offers a complete description of the successfully developed transgenic plants for around commercially relevant crops, from fruit and vegetables, to grains, industrial crops and forest tree species. Discusses the transgenic techniques used in the molecular tailoring of traits relevant from an agricultural, medicinal and environmental point. The introduction of transgenic plants into agriculture has been vigorously opposed by some. There are a number of issues that worry the opponents. One of them is the potential risk of transgenes in commercial crops endangering native or nontarget species. Examples.
This book reviews the available methodologies and devotes chapters to transgenic plants that were produced for crop improvement and for yielding valuable products. Also, information is provided on the ability to regulate the expression of alien genes in specific organs and in response to defined effectors and environmental conditions. Transgenic plants are plants that have been genetically engineered, a breeding approach that uses recombinant DNA techniques to create plants with new are identified as a.

This book is a compilation of current test methods useful in risk assessment of transgenic plants. It is a continuation of Methods for Risk Assessment of Transgenic Plants I. Competition, Establishment and Ecosystem Effects. The present volume focuses on processes in gene-transfer, incorporation of genes and the effects on populations.
A PDF is a digital representation of the print book, so while it can be loaded into most e-reader programs, it doesn't allow for resizable text or advanced, interactive functionality.
The eBook is optimized for e-reader devices and apps, which means that it offers a much better digital reading experience than a PDF, including resizable text and. Purchase Transgenic Plants - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1.

Transgenic plants serve as essential tools for research in plant biology and are the basis of modern agricultural biotechnology. In Transgenic Plants: Methods and Protocols, leading scientists describe readily reproducible techniques they have perfected for the genetic transformation and regeneration of plants.
The authors cover the most commonly used transformation systems, including /5(3). Transgenic plants. Plants are really different from animals, but not in the way you may think. Plant cells are totipotent, meaning that practically any plant cell can eventually give rise to every sort of plant tissue: roots, leaves, and seeds.
When animal cells differentiate during embryo development, they lose their totipotency forever (but the DNA in every cell retains the potential to be. Transgenic plants expressing the coat proteins of plant viruses which differ extensively in structure, morphology, genome organization and replication strategies have been generated as well.

About this book. Introduction. Development of transgenic crop plants, their utilization for improved agriculture, health, ecology and environment and their socio-political impacts are currently important fields in education, research and industries and also of interest to policy makers, social activists and regulatory and funding agencies.
