In recent years, the advances made in the use of biotechnological methods have increased to an unforeseen extent and the challenge to scientists now is to apply these techniques successfully to a range of vitally important economic and environmental situations. The impact of biotechnology on the characterization, conservation and utilization of genetic resources and consequently, future of food, agriculture, medicine and environment, is potentially enormous. Understanding and directing this potential impact is crucial because of the urgent issues that we face concerned with the environment, health, world hunger, genetic engineering and the welfare of all species for a growing world population as well as conservation of the world's rapidly dwindling plant, animal and microbial genetic resources. Genetic Resources and Biotechnology, on the one hand, deals with plant, animal and microbial genetic resources, their nature, description and utility as perpetual renewable assets and on the other with the techniques and practices of biotechnology so as to give a clear cut picture of the subject and also help the biologists keep abreast with the latest developments. The articles in this book provide not only an update of state of the art techniques in many critical areas of biotechnology, but also look into the future by defining current bottlenecks and research goals.
