Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes
by P. B. Kirti

Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes is the single source for not only the most up-to-date accounts of genetic manipulation employed today, but also ideas for realistic and practical uses.

Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes presents the latest research on all aspects of genetically modified legume production.

Covered are in-depth exploration of key topics such as:

  • genetic transformation technology
  • suppression-subtractive hybridization
  • c-DNA micro arrays
  • molecular mapping
  • tagging regulatory elements
  • real-time PCR

Additionally, Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes features a wealth of detailed references and informative tables to clearly explain pertinent data.
