Molecular Biology in Crop Protection

This book provides a comprehensive account of the use of techniques in plant molecular biology for crop protection. The book is divided into four user-friendly sections, the first providing a sound introduction to the terminology and range of techniques available in the domain of plant molecular biology. The second section provides detailed information on the applications of these techniques for solving a variety of technological problems in crop protection. The third section of the book covers genetic engineering of resistance to diseases, herbicides and pests. The final section in the book covers commercial and legislative aspects, including a commercial view of biotechnology in crop protection and the environmental and regulatory aspects of using genetically modified plants and micro-organisms in the field. The editors have drawn together an extremely impressive international list of contributors from the industrial and academic world, providing a huge wealth of vitally important information for a wide range of personnel in the crop protection industry, researchers and academics. All students studying courses in plant and agricultural sciences, crop protection and molecular biology should find this book of great use.
