Objective Genetics, Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Forestry by Vijay K. Khanna
Book Summary:

The present book has been designed to serve the students of Plant Breeding, Genetics, Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Forestry. In most of the books, the objective type questions judge the students on the basis of their ability to memorize, because of the way they are formulated. It is important to be able to remember the year of historical events, the scientists involved and who named what to make one remember the landmark contributions of the people on a particular subject.
One has to think and remember what he has learnt to be able to answer these
questions. There are some books on objective type questions on the subject of Plant Breeding and a very few on Genetics but there is hardly any book, which deals with Tissue Culture, Biotechnology, Biochemistry or Forestry.

Audience of the Book :
All these subjects are related as many postgraduate students of Genetics and Plant Breeding take Biotechnology as a minor subject whereas those of Biotechnology take Biochemistry or Genetics and Plant Breeding as a minor subject. Also, undergraduates in agricultural universities study courses on all these subjects including Forestry.
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1.Divided in 3 sections, the first section includes the multiple choice questions based on 23 categories, followed by the answers to those questions (second section). The third section includes the appendices.

2.Appendices includes list of glossaries on genetics, tissue culture, biotechnology, biochemistry, and forestry. A brief note about Nobel Prize, list of Nobel Laureates, state Agricultural Universities in India, merits and awards given by ICAR, etc

3.Over 3200 questions have been given in the book
