  • First reference on the recent developments in a new area of science and fills a void in publications on crucifers
  • Offers the most up-to-date and accurate information and will prove useful for students, researchers, and industrialists
  • Biotechnology of Crucifers addresses the exciting advances in the field and looks to the future of genetic engineering and manipulation

The understanding of genetic material (DNA/RNA) and its manipulation by scientists has provided the opportunity to improve crucifers by increasing its diversity beyond conventional genetic limitations. The application of the biotechnological techniques will have major impacts in two ways: first, it provides a number of techniques/methods for efficient selection for favorable variants and second, it gives an opportunity to utilize alien variation available in the crucifers by using the novel techniques of biotechnology to develop high yielding varieties with good nutritional quality, having resistance to insect, pest, and disease resistance.

Biotechnology of Crucifers will benefit students, nutritionists, and biotechnologists, as well as researchers engaged in improvement of Brassicas.
