Particle Bombardment for Genetic Engineering of Plants
Particle bombardment is an effective method for introgressing foreign genes into varieties of cultivated crops and has now been established as the method of choice for the engineering of plant species which, until recently, were viewed as unlikely candidates for genetic manipulation. This book brings together all that is known about the technique and provides a comprehensive review of principles and applications of particle bombardment.
