Impact of Plant Biotechnology on Horticulture (4th Ed) by Prasad S
Book Summary:

The term biotechnology encompasses a wide array of techniques through which humans employ biological processes to provide useful products. More recently, the term has come to mean the collection of techniques that allow the direct manipulation of specific pieces of genetic material within and between organisms. There are many applications of biotechnology in crop improvement. Modern biotechnology holds considerable promise to meet challenges in agricultural production. It is used in horticultural crops to develop commercial processes and products which also includes the techniques of Recombinant DNA, gene transfer, embryo manipulation, plant regeneration, cell culture, monoclonal antibodies and bio-processed engineering. These techniques can transform ideas into practical applications, viz, certain crops can be genetically altered to increase their tolerance to certain herbicides. Biotechnology can be used to develop safer vaccines against viral and bacterial diseases.
