About this Book

Welcome to the Handbook of Plant Biotechnology

The Handbook of Plant Biotechnology offers timely and authoritative information by presenting the polemic field of plant biotechnology in an appropriate science-based perspective. As the field of plant biotechnology reaches a historically critical point in time, opinion based in scientific fact is critical for society. Is the practice dangerous or does it have the potential to be the next Green Revolution?

From point of discovery science through to intellectual property issues, risk assessment and commercialisation, the Handbook provides you with expert information to help you formulate your own opinions.
