Sugarcane Biotechnology


Authors: G.R. Naik
Publishing: Science Publishers, Inc.
Published: February 2001
This Book provides an account of the progress made so far in sugarcane biotechnology. It summarizes the new developments in biological research mainly related to plant molecular biology. The bioanalytical techniques and methodology explored in understanding molecular basis of life process are also covered in this volume. The book also provides information on diagnostic tools for detection of cane diseases in planting material. Sugarcane genome analysis is in progress at some laboratories. The results of such investigations and its utility in crop production are described here. Contents: . Sugarcane (Important Commercial Crop; History of Sugarcane; Sugarcane Productivity) .
