This timely and important book presents the essence of transgenic plant production. This activity is being pursued by many investigators and interesting results are rapidly accumulating. The basic methodologies have been developed and the transformation of additional plant species is more an ?engineering?/biotechnology problem than a matter of developing new scientific concepts. This book reviews the available methodologies and devotes chapters to transgenic plants that were produced for crop improvement and for yielding valuable products. Also, information is provided on the ability to regulate the expression of alien genes in specific organs and in response to defined effectors and environmental conditions. Finally, transgenic plants may have commercial value, therefore the issues of intellectual property and other aspects of commercialisation are handled in a special appendix.

In addition to providing a comprehensive overview of transgenic plant production for investigators engaged in a specific niche of this endeavour, this book will be of interest to all students of plant biology and to those who consider producing transgenic plants in the future. Plant breeders and commercial companies engaged in seed production will definitely benefit from this book.

Contents: The Concept: Integration and Expression of Alien Genes in Transgenic Plants; Transformation Approaches; Tools for Genetic Transformation; Regulation of Heterologous Gene Expression; Crop Improvement; Manufacture of Valuable Products; Benefits and Risks of Producing Transgenic Plants; Appendix: Intellectual Property and Regulatory Requirements Affecting the Commercialisation of Transgenic Plants.

Readership: Researchers and students in plant biology (especially plant molecular genetics & biotechnology), plant breeders and commercial biotechnology companies.
