About this book

Cotton is a multipurpose crop and produces lint, the most important source of fiber used in the textile industry, oil, seed meal, and hulls.
Twenty-three chapters on various aspects of in vitro manipulation and other biotechnological approaches to the improvement of cotton are arranged in six sections: I Biotechnology for the Improvement of Cotton; Establishment of Callus Culture and Somatic Embryogenesis; Protoplast Culture, Micropropagation, and the Conservation of Germplasm
II Interspecific Hybridization, Embryo/Ovule Culture; In Vitro Fertilization; RAPD, Heterosis
III Anther/Pollen Culture; Parthenogenesis and Haploid Breeding
IV Somaclonal Variation; Genetic Variability for Plants Tolerant to Salt, High Temperature, Nematodes
V Genetic Transformation; Transgenic Cotton Plants Resistant to Insects, Herbicides; Field Trials; Risk Assessment Studies; Engineering of Fiber
VI Secondary Metabolites - Gossypol and Tannins Special emphasis is placed on interspecific hybridization, somaclonal variation, transgenic cotton resistant to insects and herbicides, and re-engineering of fiber. This book is of special interest to advanced students, teachers, and research workers in the field of cotton breeding, genetics, tissue culture, molecular biology, and plant biotechnology in general.
