Breathtaking Progress has been made in biotechnology in the past 20 years. The global biotechnology industry is now at the initiation of a technology curve whose growing potential seems limitless. It is the next driver of innovation and economic growth. This cutting edge technology is already beginning to usher in complex, rapidly emerging and far reaching new changes in several areas, particularly food and nutrition, security, healthcare and environmental sustainability. It has sparked several discoveries. The Present Book Biotechnology : Cracking New Pastures discusses selected topics to provide the reader a sound knowledge of selected areas in different guises, ranging from Lectins, RNAi, Bacterial biosorption of heavy metals, Increasing yield potential of grain legumes, Science of Omics, Endophytic fungi; advances in DNA transfer, Prions, Chemistry and Functions of No, etc. Each topic is written by an expert and offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on pertinent topic. Most of these topics are sought after by researchers and students at the graduate as well as postgraduate levels. Each chapter discusses the current status. The Strength of this book is profusely used images and extensive literature citation. To give a snapshot of state-of-art research in the related area where things move faster then anywhere else is next to impossible. Several authors asd co-authors have worked on this project and although we tried to find a more or less uniform style, the authors with their unique views and values are still recognizable. Certain to became the standard reference for biotechnologists, molecular biologists, breeders, applied biologists a must for teachers and students engaged in teaching and research in physiology and plant science, the book is the definitive source for those who are keen to remain updated with the recent advances in biotechnology
