Adrian Slater, Nigel Scott and Mark Fowler have produced just such a textbook, providing a critical appraisal of the genetic manipulation of crop plants for advanced undergraduate study and plant biotechnology by adrian slater postgraduate student market. Scott, and Mark R. Political difficulties and some public opposition, especially in Europe, to GM crop products are introduced which is, in itself, a reflection of the book’s broad coverage.
Plants, Biotecnology, and Agriculture: The book culminates in a final review of future prospects for genetically modified crops, which stresses the legislative framework together with platn, social and ethical dimensions.

Sridurgadevi marked it as to-read Jan 08, The genetic manipulation of herbicide tolerance 6. A discussion of the design of constructs for plant genetic manipulation precedes a series of chapters covering specific objectives for GM crops, such as herbicide resistance, pest resistance and disease resistance.
The book describes the techniques underpinning genetic manipulation in a clear, lucid manner, and makes extensive use of case studies to illustrate how this influential tool is used in practice. Interesting coverage is also provided of the very important Arabidopsis Genome Sequencing Initiative and the International Rice Genome Sequencing Project, which clearly represent milestones in biotechnology discovery.
