Transgenic Plant Technology for Remediation of Toxic Metals and Metalloids 1st Edition
Transgenic Plant Technology for Remediation of Toxic Metals and Metalloids covers all the technical aspects of gene transfer, from molecular methods, to field performance using a wide range of plants and diverse abiotic stress factors. It describes methodologies that are well established as a key resource for researchers, as well as a tool for training technicians and students. This book is an essential reference for those in the plant sciences, forestry, agriculture, microbiology, environmental biology and plant biotechnology, and those using transgenic plant models in such areas as molecular and cell biology, developmental biology, stress physiology and phytoremediation.
- Provides in-depth coverage of transgenic plant technology for environmental problems
- Discusses background and an introduction to techniques and salient protocols using specific plants systems
- Includes emerging strategies for application of transgenic plans in remediation
