Introductory Plant Biotechnology, the first ever studnt-oriented edition, is a humble attempt by the authors to projects the basic concept in plant biotechnology for easy comprehension by the students and those whi seek to know the basics of biotechnology. Storting with the concept of cellular totipotency, journeying through plant cell, tissue and organ culture techniques with emphasis on applicationd in agriculture, the book outline many principles of genetic manipulation, ending with the transgene biotechnology. The unique effort of the authors to manifest 'biotechnology in practice' as follow-up of the text will enable students and learners to apply the techniques in their respective disciplines of teaching and reaearch.
