Overview


Written by distinguished experts in the field, this unique volume details the power and versatility of particle bombardment gene transfer technology. Applicable to a wide spectrum of experimental systems--including those of plants, insects, fish, cell organelles, and mammals--particle bombardment techniques have dramatically overcome many of the constraints imposed by more traditional gene transfer methods. This book shows how this exciting new technology has fostered landmark breakthroughs in fields as diverse as crop improvement and human gene therapy. Hardware design, recombinant DNA and tissue culture techniques, and other issues are comprehensively treated. In order to aid the reader in assessing the important theoretical, technical, and historical implications of the technology, the book carefully examines pertinent aspects of plant, microorganism, and mammalian systems. Particle Bombardment Technology for Gene Transfer--the only complete and systematic description of this emerging technology available--will be a valuable resource for professional and novice biotechnology researchers alike.
