Banana Improvement
Cellular, Molecular Biology, and Induced Mutations
edited by S. Mohan Jain

Banana Improvement contains the results obtained during FAO/IAEA Coordinated Research Project including mutation techniques for creation of new useful banana genotypes

Features:

  • Contains several review papers with the aim of providing state of the are information on a number of biotechnological tools for adoption by breeders and molecular biologists
  • Includes cryopreservaton and somatic embryogenesis to allow maintenance and propagation of Musa germplasm: induced mutogenesis; and somacional variation
  • Useful to international researchers engaged in banana genetic improvement for enhanced food security, nutrition, and employment generation
