Plant Biotechnology is a set of scientific techniques used to develop and modify plants for specific and beneficial needs. It’s a highly complex work includes Plant Tissue Culture, Plants micropropagation, Plant mutation cloning, Plant cells technology to develop a new or suitable plant, as per the requirement.
There are two major aspects in plat biotechnology: One is Plant Tissue Culture which includes plant cloning and the second one is Recombinant DNA Technology which has gene cloning process. Researchers developed genetically modified crops or transgenic crops which we call them as conventional foods, by using plant cloning and gene cloning techniques.
As per the current situation, world is facing a Food Crisis due to less water, less land, less labor, fewer chemicals, less material and increase in population. To control food crisis and produce crops in high yield, researchers are using techniques to detect and identify genes and their function, which helps them in breeding and gene transferring process.
