About this book


Recently. there has been tremendous progress in the genetic transformation of agricultural crops, and plants resistant to insects, herbicides, and diseases have been produced, field tested and patented. Transgenic Crops I compiles this information on cereals, grasses, legumes, and oilseed crops. It comprises 25 chapters and is divided into two sections:
I. Cereals and Grasses: wheat, rice, maize, barley, sorghum, pearl millet, triticale, Agrostis spp., Cenchrus ciliaris, Dactylis glomerata, Festuca arundinacea, Lolium spp., and sugarcane.
II. Legumes and Oilseed Crops: Arachis hypogaea, Brassica juncea, Brassica napus, Cicer arietinum, Glycine max, Gossypium hirsutum, Helianthus annuus, Lens culinaris, Linum usitatissimum, Sinapis alba, Trifolium, and Vicis narbonensis.
This book is of special interest to advanced students, teachers, and research workers in the field of plant breeding, genetics, molecular biology, plant tissue culture, and plant biotechnology in general.
