Genetic Engineering with Plant Viruses

Overview

The past 10 years have seen a dramatic expansion in our ability to manipulate, understand, and exploit the comparatively small genomes of plant viruses. Genetic Engineering with Plant Viruses examines viral genome structure and gene expression of RNA and DNA viruses, providing up-to-date reviews, new information, and interesting prospects and applications of research. The book also pulls together some of the most recent discoveries and avenues of thinking regarding the use of plant viruses as probes and vectors ...

Overview

The past 10 years have seen a dramatic expansion in our ability to manipulate, understand, and exploit the comparatively small genomes of plant viruses. Genetic Engineering with Plant Viruses examines viral genome structure and gene expression of RNA and DNA viruses, providing up-to-date reviews, new information, and interesting prospects and applications of research. The book also pulls together some of the most recent discoveries and avenues of thinking regarding the use of plant viruses as probes and vectors for analyzing host plants.

Researchers and students of molecular biology, virology, and plant pathology will find Genetic Engineering with Plant Viruses invaluable. The book will also benefit biochemists, biophysicists, geneticists, and researchers in the biotechnology industry.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Summarizes the recent advances in creating genetically modified plant viruses to use in increasing the resistance of crops to disease by acting as decoys or competitors to natural viruses, or by interfering with the natural processes of viral pathogens. Discusses the stability and utility of plant virus replicons, geminiviruses as gene vectors, the impact of genetic engineering on classical plant virology, and other topics. Annotation c.
