Plant biotechnology is an extension of this traditional plant breeding with one very important difference Plant biotechnology allows for the transfer of a greater variety of genetic information in a more precise, controlled manner. Unlike traditional plant breeding, which involves the crossing of hundreds or thousands of genes, plant biotechnology allows for the transfer of only one or a few desirable genes. Plant biotechnology allows the transfer of only one or a limited number of desirable genes such more precise technology allows plant breeding to develop crops with specific beneficial traits white avoiding any undesirable background. The volume comprises of 18 chapters contributed by the internationally recognized experts from different parts of the world all of whom have deep knowledge and research experience in plant biotechnology. The volume is relevant and timely in view to the rapidly expanding international trade of biotechnology for crop improvements. This may also facilitate researchers on novel approaches for finding and management of various issues in crop biotechnology on a global scale.
