Synopsis

This study reviews recent advances in the application of molecular biology techniques to crop improvement. A range of agricultural and horticultural problems are approached, including the genetic engineering of insect resistance, herbicide resistance and suppression of gene expression using anti-sense RNA. The book considers major advances in cereal transformation, particularly with rice, and documents some of the uses of molecular biology in potato and other crop improvement. The molecular biology of seed protein genes and self-incompatibility genes are examined and the potential benefits of this data in the engineering of protein quality or male sterility, respectively, are considered. Recent developments in the molecular biology and control of flower colour and pigmentation are also presented.
