Plant biotechnology ushers in a new era for plant scientists working to maintain healthy plants, optimize crop yields, and minimize pesticide usage. One of the ultimate aims of agricultural biotechnology is to feed an expanding world population. Considering the rapid pace with which biotechnology has been advancing in its progress, it comes as no surprise that plant pathology today has undergone vast changes. The study of plant diseases, their causes and the changes they produce in the cells, tissues and organs has been greatly aided by the continual enhancement of biotechnology principles and processes, particularly that of genetic engineering. This book provides current developments and advances in the field of plant pathology and biotechnology, particularly within the context of the widening scope of such arenas as biochemistry. Emphasizing upon the principles, techniques and processes associated with it, the text gives space to covering critical perspectives which look into the future prospects, challenges and advantages offered by these trends.
