About this book

This book will be of immense helpful to the students of plant biotechnology, Agricultural sciences, Microbiology of both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in universities, colleges, and Research institutes. Besides the book will be quite supportive researchers who work in the field of plant biotechnology and agricultural sciences. In this book, the main focus will be on advanced genome editing approaches for the production of GM crops besides their socioeconomic, ethical and risk-biosafety assessments. Nanotechnology is the new emerging and fascinating field of science finds its application in almost all the major research areas and its uses in agriculture and food sectors are incipient.The books seems to be first in summarizing the two way interactive approach in the field of plant biotechnology and setting of a new arena in shaping the new bio techniques towards the sustainable cause.


About the authors

Dr.Javid A. Parray is presently working as an Assistant professor in Department of Environmental Science Govt SAM Degree College, Budgam Jammu and Kashmir, India-190006. He is also running a DST SERB –YSS Research project “rhizospheric potential of Arnebia benthamii. He did his Post Doctorate Research Associate ship in a DBT funded project entitled “Tissue culture based network programme on saffron” and Ph.D. in Environmental Science with specialization in Plant microbe interaction on the topic entitled “Evaluating role of Rhizospheric bacteria in saffron culture” from University of Kashmir. He has a strong interest in studying the plant rhizosphere for determining their metabolic potential besides using plant tissue culture based technique like suspension culture for increasing and producing the constant supply of active metabolites. He has published many research articles in reputed, referred international and national journals. I have also authored many books on different themes like “Approaches to heavy metal stress tolerance in plants” & and sustainableagriculture: advances in plant metabolome and microbiome, with Elsevier. I was also awarded “Emerging scientist year award” by IndianAcademy of Environmental Science for the year 2015.

Mohammad Yaseen Mir is presently working as an JRF in Research project funded by Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF & CC), Government of India along with G.B. Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment & Sustainable Development under National Mission on Himalayan Studies (NMHS). He did his M.Phil Programme in the University of Kashmir and his currently persuing his PhD Programme from the University of Kashmir as well. He has published many research articles in reputed, referred international and national journals.

Dr. Nowsheen Shameem (M.Phil, Ph.D) is presently working as an Assistant Professor (CL) in Department of Environmental Science Cluster University Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India-190001. She did her Doctorate (PhD) from University of Kashmir on nutraceutical value of wild mushrooms growing in Kashmir valley in the year 2017. She has a research expertise in Microbial biotechnology, Plant bioactivity and biotechnology, medicinal chemistry, and Plant microbe interactions. She published many research articles in reputed, referred international and national journals like Springer/Elsevier/Hindwaii.She has also edited one Book on Fresh water Microbiology published by Elsiever in 2019.
