Summary

Summary

Begins a series reporting how recent findings in the physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology of plants can be combined with biotechnological methods to alter the properties of plants for commercial applications. It is intended for those involved in fundamental and applied research on transgenic plants in the academic and commercial sectors. In the inaugural volume, researchers present eight discussions of plant genes, how they work, and transfering them from one organism to another; the first generation of transgenic plants, constructed to be resistant to insects, viruses, and herbicides; and aspects of gene regulation and targeting protein products to the desired cellular location.
