"Plant biochemistry is the study of the chemistry of plants. Plant biochemists study the structure and function of cellular components and chemical reactions that taking place in plants. The tools and techniques of new biology have opened several new and exciting avenues in plant biochemistry. However, these have not been sufficiently tapped by plant scientists, in their rush for cloning, sequencing, tissue culture and transformation. Biochemistry is the study of chemical reactions taking place in living organisms, notably reactions of degradation of food substances which provide the energy required by organisms, and transformation of biosynthesis reactions leading to the formation of compounds needed by the cells. Essentials of Plant Breeding provides comprehensive coverage of principles and practices used in plant breeding. Covering basic concepts of genetics and conventional methods, the book discusses all modern methods and advance techniques of plant breeding. Plant breeding is the process by which humans change the characteristics of plants over time to make them better crops and more nourishing food. In its most simple form, breeding consists of selecting the best plants in a given field, growing them to full seed and then using that seed to grow further generations. This book provides students and researchers in the plant sciences with a concise, up-to-date account of the biochemical basis of the major metabolic processes in plants. The book is also useful for the postgraduate students of botany and plant science."--Back cover
