Part of the Progress in Botany/Fortschritte der Botanik book series (BOTANY, volume 49)


Extensive progress has been made in the last couple of years in the fields of plant cell genetics and gene technology. Techniques of asexual recombination of genomes, chromosomes or genes have been improved and applied to more species including cultivars of various crop plants. Scientific areas where particularly large steps forward have been taken are (1) establishment of new hybrids by protoplast fusion, (2) induction of somaclonal variation, (3) elucidation of the structure and function of mobile genetic elements (transposons) and (4) genetic engineering via construction and application of different vector systems.
