PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY BY ADRIAN SLATER PDF

Plant Biotechnology The genetic manipulation of plants Second Edition Adrian Slater, Nigel Scott, and Mark Fowler Description Throughout history, humankind has pursued means to improve the yield of crop plants through selective plant breeding and hybridization. Today, genetic manipulation provides a powerful tool for directing plant breeding. But how is genetic manipulation implemented? What benefits can it offer? And what are the broader issues surrounding the use of this technology?

The text begins with a summary of current knowledge about plant genome organisation and gene expression, followed by anintroduction to the techniques of plant tissue culture and genetic transformation and their application to crop plants. A consideration of the design of constructs for plant genetic manipulation precedes a series of chapters covering specific targets for GM crops.

These include the geneticmanipulation of herbicide resistance, pest resistance and disease resistance. Strategies for engineering stress tolerance and the improvement of crop yield and quality are discussed, and the prospects for "molecular farming" are considered.

The text concentrates on the core molecular biological issues, while the accompanying Online Resource Centre encourages an exploration of the wider implications and concerns about GM crops. It also features weblinks to relevant sites with additional information or discussion including those hosted by the protagonists of the GM debate. He studied for a PhD at Glasgow University in the processing and transport of RNA in human cells and continued there as a postdoctoral researcher on human heat shock proteins.

He moved to the University of Nottingham School of Agriculture to a post-doctoral research post working on the cloning of ripening-related genes from tomato. He was appointed as a lecturer in plant molecular biology at Leicester Polytechnic now De Montfort University, Leicester in and has continued working there on the plant cell cycle and the genetic manipulation of plant development.

During a post-doctoral career that included periods at the University of Warwick and the NERC Institute of Virology and Environmental Microbiology, Oxford, he did research in various areas of microbial development and plant-virus interactions. He was appointed as a lecturer in plant molecular biology at De Montfort University in and continues to lecture and carry out research in the genetic manipulation of plant development, genetics and microbiology.

He has been a post-doctoral research scientist, junior research fellow and now research fellow all at De Montfort University.
