Editorial Reviews


`"Misinformation is rife, sadly, and there is a clear need for good sources of accurate and appropriate accounts of plant biotechnology development. Adrian Slater, Nigel Scott and Mark Fowler have produced just such a textbook, providing a critical appraisal of the genetic manipulation of crop plants for advanced undergraduate study and the postgraduate student market."' W. Paul Davies, Annals of Botany, Vol 94. No 4, October 2004

'The discussion in 'Plant Biotechnology' is at a high academic level. The book is aimed at advanced undergraduates with a serious interest in this attractive topic and graduate students wishing to pursue a career in the field.' Book Reviews - Energy Life Science, 2004,Vol.4 No.4.

'Each chapter is well structured, containing line drawings that clearly and simply illustrate concepts in the text.'Heredity (2004)93,114

`There is a significant need for such a book.' Dr Stephen Moose, University of Illinois

"Comprehensive and well-written...the book is well illustrated and is accompanied by an excellent companion website.....clearly considerable thought and care has gone into the design of the book." Book Reviews/Phytochemistry 64 (2003) 1171-1174.

`"... a well thought-out teaching aid, which distinguisehs itself in part by its wide-ranging coverage... a useful contribution to our understanding, and a valuable new teaching and learning resource."' W. Paul Davies, Annals of Botany, Vol 94. No 4, October 2004

About the Author

Adrian Slater graduated in 1975 from Edinburgh University with a degree in Biological Sciences. He studied for a PhD at Glasgow University in the processing and transport of RNA in human cells and continued there as a postdoctoral researcher on human heat shock proteins. He moved to the University of Nottingham School of Agriculture to a post-doctoral research post working on the cloning of ripening-related genes from tomato. He was appointed as a lecturer in plant molecular biology at Leicester Polytechnic (now De Montfort University, Leicester) in 1986 and has continued working there on the plant cell cycle and the genetic manipulation of plant development. He is currently the deputy director of the De Montfort University Norman Borlaug Institute for Plant Science Research. Dr Nigel Scott graduated in 1976 from Leeds University with a degree in Biochemistry and Genetics then studied for a PhD in Bacterial Genetics at Newcastle University. During a post-doctoral career that included periods at the University of Warwick and the NERC Institute of Virology and Environmental Microbiology, Oxford, he did research in various areas of microbial development and plant-virus interactions. He was appointed as a lecturer in plant molecular biology at De Montfort University in 1992 and continues to lecture and carry out research in the genetic manipulation of plant development, genetics and microbiology. Dr Mark Fowler graduated in 1987 from Leicester Polytechnic with a degree in Science and the Environment and stayed at Leicester Polytechnic/De Montfort University to study for a PhD in the control of plant cell division. He has been a post-doctoral research scientist, junior research fellow and now research fellow all at De Montfort University.
