Transgenic Plants : New Research Hardback
Edited by Oliver T. Chan
Transgenic plants possess a gene or genes that have been transferred from a different species.
Although DNA of another species can be integrated in a plant genome by natural processes, the term "transgenic plants" refers to plants created in a laboratory using recombinant DNA technology.
The aim is to design plants with specific characteristics by artificial insertion of genes from other species or sometimes entirely different kingdoms.
This book presents the latest research in this growing field.
