Covers problems of commercial exploitation, socio-legal aspects of genetic engineering of crop plants, and of the difficulties of marketing natural compunds produced by cells under artificial conditions. The series is an indispensible resource for crop breeders, plant scientists, and teachers involved in crop improvement and genetic resources. All books are in clear copy here, and all files are secure so don't worry about it. Producing Fertile Somatic Hybrids E. Virus infections of plants are controlled and suppressed naturally by the action of resistance genes encoded within the plant, by interactions between viruses or even as a result of the activity of functions encoded by or associated with the virus itself. The Role of Pathogenesis-related proteins J.
Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards. This volume focuses on topics that must be better understood in order to foster future developments in basic and applied plant virology. Author: David Evered; Sara Harnett; Ciba Foundation Publisher: Chichester ; New York : Wiley, 1987. Firstly, the sources of virus infection can be removed, say, by use of virus-free planting stock or by eradication schemes. Biosynthesis of Tropane Alkaloids Y. Proceedings of the Symposium on Plant Resistance to Viruses, held at the Ciba Foundation, London, 31 March-2 April 1987.
Biotechnological Approaches to the Production of Isoquinoline Alkaloids M. Department s Publication type Book Review aimed at a professional audience Publication year 1989 Comments. Plant Viruses As Molecular Pathogens is the only book to bring you all of this information--22 chapters--in a single volume, compiled by specialists around the globe! Dedication: Derek Jennings and Hugh A. Molecular genetics has provided the tools to analyse and manipulate mechanisms of pathogenicity and resistance responses and has facilitated their study from the population to the molecular level. Comment: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition.
Discusses the mechanisms of innate resistance in strains of tobacco, tomato, and cowpea; various aspects of induced resistance, including the characterization and roles of the pathogenesis-related proteins; antiviral substances and their comparison with interferon; and cross-protection between plant virus strains. This latter approach has several major advantages: it is considered to be the most economical for farmers; it reduces the ecological problems caused by the widespread use of pesticides; and it is thought to be the most effective control measure in the long term. Thirdly, virus-resistant varieties of crops can be used. Berry Breeders Extraordinaire Kim E. Many plant viruses - for example, tobacco mosaic virus - have been used as model systems to provide basic understanding of how viruses express genes and replicate. This work deals with basic plant physiology and cytology, and addresses the practical exploitation of plants, both as crops and as sources of useful compounds produced as secondary metabolites.
This volume presents a timely survey of the mechanisms of plant resistance and examines current developments in breeding for resistance, with particular emphasis on advances in genetic engineering which allow for the incorporation of viral genetic material into plants. Author: David Evered; Sara Harnett Publisher: Chichester ; New York : Wiley, 1987. Further, it includes recent developments in the field of plant virology as well as indicates future prospects in relevant areas of investigation. Identification of sources of resistance genes, cloning and characterization of desired resistance genes and incorporation of resistance gene s into cultivars and transformation of plants with selected gene s have been successfully performed by applying appropriate molecular techniques. Selected Publications of Hugh A. Mechanism of the Hypersensitivity Reaction of Plants B.
Here you'll find new and useful information about plant molecular virology and how the field can improve the world food situation in the coming years. Also presents several papers which evaluate the status of genetic engineering as it relates to breeding resistant plants. Problems in Commercial Exploitation of Plant Cell Cultures M. Full text documents are added when available. Also presents several papers which evaluate the status of genetic engineering as it relates to breeding resistant plants.

Plant Breeding Reviews presents state-of-the-art reviews on plant breeding and genetics covering horticultural, agronomic and forestry crops, incorporating both traditional and molecular methods. Analysis of the N Gene of Nicotiana D. The fourth edition updates and revises many details of the previous editon, while retaining the important older results that constitute the field's conceptual foundation. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Chichester, New York, Brisbane, Toronto, Singapore.
Your order is also backed by our! Digital master created according to Benchmark for Faithful Digital Reproductions of Monographs and Serials, Version 1. Initiated in 1983, Plant Breeding Reviews is published in the form of one or two volumes per year. Molecular techniques have accelerated the formulation of short- and long-term strategies of disease management. Genetic Engineering Approaches to Plant Resistance L. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.
Genetic Engineering of Plants for Protection against Virus Diseases R. Throughout, the focus is on the most recent, cutting-edge research, making this book essential reading for everyone working with plant viruses. The E-mail message field is required. If for any reason your order is not available to ship, you will not be charged. Digital Library Federation, December 2002. Thus, authors have largely concentrated on a didactic approach and the book should remain useable for several years in spite of the rapid progress in research. We have a manual that Record number 9323 Title Boekbespreking: Plant resistance to viruses, D.
This symposium presents a survey of the mechanisms of plant resistance and possible approaches to breeding for resistance. There are three basic approaches to preventing these crop losses. These various regulatory processes are now being manipulated for the genetic engineering of virus resistance. However, interest in plant viruses extends beyond their ability to damage crops. Analysis of Chloroplast Genomes in Parasexual Hybrid Calli A. This has provided the impetus for the extensive research into the molecular and cellular biology of these pathogens and into their interaction with their plant hosts and their vectors. Nikki Jennings, and Courtney A.
