Thirty years ago, in vitro propagation was a new technique for producing plants, and Lydiane Kyte’s Plants from Test Tubes became the standard work on the topic. The new fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the many advances in science and technology, including the five accepted sequential stages of micropropagation. Ten new plants have been added. This in turn has greatly expanded the already extensive bibliography. Among the new topics that have been introduced or expanded on are embryo culture for breeding, somaclonal variation, anther culture, somatic embryogenesis, cryopreservation, and genetic engineering. More ornamental plant examples are given and many new illustrations provided, including a chronology of discoveries in micropropagation.

The observation that plant cells grown in a nutrient solution aseptically have an innate potential to give rise to whole plant led to the foundation for the technique known as tissue culture. The knowledge that thousands of plantlets would be obtained from a bit of plant tissue has paved way to the development of a industry for plant propagation. During the past 40 years enormous efforts and research for refining plant tissue culture techniques has led to the development of a technology. Since the application of micropropagation has multiplied so rapidly in recent years, a brief overview of the technology seems to be appropriate. This overview on micropropagation is concise since the topic has been covered in numerous other books and reviews. The book serves as a ready reckoner or as an instant note for both UG and PG students of various universities. The book starts with an introductory chapter followed by the description on the technique of tissue culture, various methods of micropropagation, and different phases of micropropagation. The book has been concluded by description on the bottleneck of micropropagation viz. soma clonal variations. Readers will find the book to be a comprehensive and valuable resource for studying micropropagation approaches.

The book is primarily designed for B.Sc. and M.Sc. students of Biotechnology, Botany, Plant Biotechnology, Plant Molecular Biology, Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering as well as for those pursuing B.Tech. and M.Tech. in Biotechnology. It will also be of immense value to the research scholars and academics in the field. Though ample literature is available on this subject, still a textbook combining biotechnology and genetic engineering has always been in demand by the readers. Hence, with this objective, the authors have presented this compact yet comprehensive text to the students and the teaching fraternity, providing clear and concise understanding of the principles of biotechnology and genetic engineering. It has a special focus on tissue culture, protoplasm isolation and fusion, and transgenic plants in addition to the basic concepts and techniques of the subject. It gives sound knowledge of gene structure, manipulation and plant transformation vectors. KEY FEATURES • Combines knowledge of Plant Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering in a single volume. • Text interspersed with illustrative examples. • Graded questions and pedagogy, Multiple choice questions, Fill in the blanks, True-false, Short answer questions, Long answer questions and discussion problems in each chapter. • Clear, self-explanatory, and labelled diagrams. • Solutions to all MCQs in the respective chapters.

Die „Pflanzenbiochemie" hat sich im deutschsprachigen Raum, aber auch in zahlreichen Übersetzungen als Standardlehrbuch etabliert. Birgit Piechulla, Dozentin an der Universität Rostock, zeichnet als Co-Autorin bei dieser 5. Auflage verantwortlich und hat zusammen mit Hans-Walter Heldt das Buch gründlich überarbeitet und aktualisiert. Neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse fanden Eingang in dieses Buch, die sich auch in neuen Abbildungen sowie der stark überarbeiteten Literatur widerspiegeln. Besonderen Wert legen die Autoren darauf, die offenen, zukunftsweisenden Fragen, die den derzeitigen Stand unseres Wissens markieren, aufzuzeigen. Aktualität sowie die klare und verständliche Didaktik komplexer Sachverhalte darzustellen -- das sind die Kennzeichen dieses Lehrbuches. Mit sorgfältig erstellten zweifarbigen Abbildungen erfüllt es einen hohen didaktischen Anspruch und reiht sich unter die besten Biochemie-Lehrbücher.
