Overview

Topics in this groundbreaking proceedings include: the manipulation of genes in plants in order to produce needed food-related compounds, no vel vaccines and therapeutic reagents, better overall fruits and veget ables, improved nutritional quality, and prevention of problems affect ing the quality of plant foods. General strategies are presented on ho w to efficiently approach the bioengineering of a plant for better pro perties by creating arsenals of various cloned genes for enzymes from plant algae, fungal, and bacterial sources.
