Plant biotechnology had emerged as a powerful tool to efficiently and precisely re-tailor genetic barriers and enable gene transfer between distinctly different organisms in a timely fashion. A clear technological leap is merging traditional genetics with direct gene manipulation in producing transgenic plants with better quality, longer post-harvest life, and inbred-traits conferring resistance to Phytopathogens. The benefits of biotechnology are just in the beginning phase and the promises it has are still unfathomable. This book “Biotechnology and Food Security” contains 14 articles on different areas of biotechnology with special emphasis on application of biotechnology in relation to food security. Topics related to agriculture biotechnology includes: Food security through advances in rice biotechnology; Recent advances in Plant Biotechnology: Applications in Agriculture; Transgenic crops and biosafety measures; Enhancing shelf life of fruits by antisense technology and Genetically modified food-Myths and Facts. Other related articles includes-An account of advances in in vitro morphogenetic studies of pulses; Transgenic male sterility-Progress and prospects; Biotechnological interventions for Forage improvement and Biotechnology & Ornamentals. Book covers articles on Secondary metabolites and plant tissue culture applications; Biological hardening and enhancement of therapeutic properties of Centella asiatica and In vitro plant regeneration and somaclonal variation in medicago sativa. Article on Potential of rumen fungi to degrade plant lignin and cellulose and DNA microarray for monitoring entire genome on one chip have added value to the book. This book will be useful to researchers, teachers and students of Biotechnology, Microbiology, Agriculture and Botany and for the industry people at large.
