About The Book

The introduction of foreign genetic material into host cells is a vital step in genetic engineering. It is especially important when one considers the potential application of gene transfer systems to crop improvement with the aim of engineering specific traits into a wide variety of plants. The book is an overview of the current research into gene transfer technology and will be valuable for those, who are involved in the field of plant molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology and biotechnology.
