Plant genetics has come a long way from the time Gregor Mendel observed the traits of his pea plants. This book provides a glimpse on the advancements in plant genetics, putting emphasis on the various sequencing technologies that were instrumental in unlocking the plant genome. The plant genome has also lent itself to manipulation and modification, contributing greatly to the body of genetic knowledge as well as producing economically-, nutritionally-, and medically-significant plants. This book compiles and describes these plant genetic engineering and genomic editing approaches.
