By Y. P. S. Bajaj (auth.), Professor Dr. Y. P. S. Bajaj (eds.)

Cotton is a multipurpose crop and produces lint, an important resource of fiber utilized in the cloth undefined, oil, seed meal, and hulls.
Twenty-three chapters on a variety of facets of in vitro manipulation and different biotechnological techniques to the development of cotton are prepared in six sections: I Biotechnology for the advance of Cotton; institution of Callus tradition and Somatic Embryogenesis; Protoplast tradition, Micropropagation, and the Conservation of Germplasm
II Interspecific Hybridization, Embryo/Ovule tradition; In Vitro Fertilization; RAPD, Heterosis
III Anther/Pollen tradition; Parthenogenesis and Haploid Breeding
IV Somaclonal version; Genetic Variability for vegetation Tolerant to Salt, hot temperature, Nematodes
V Genetic Transformation; Transgenic Cotton vegetation immune to bugs, Herbicides; box Trials; possibility review experiences; Engineering of Fiber
VI Secondary Metabolites - Gossypol and Tannins precise emphasis is put on interspecific hybridization, somaclonal edition, transgenic cotton proof against bugs and herbicides, and re-engineering of fiber. This e-book is of exact curiosity to complex scholars, academics, and study employees within the box of cotton breeding, genetics, tissue tradition, molecular biology, and plant biotechnology in general.
