Biotechnological Tools for Genetic Resources

Pradip Chandra Deka (Editor)

Identification of plants, animals and microbes, efficiently within a reasonable period of time, has always remained a challenge for taxonomists. Recent advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have opened up exciting possibilities for faster and reliable identification of all organisms. Similarly, advances in certain other biotechnological tools and techniques have created new avenues for utilization of the genetic resources of plants, animals and microbes. Thus it became essential to provide all these advanced and novel information in a comprehensive manner. Therefore an effort has been made to compile and present all these new biotechnological tools in this book. The biotechnological tools covered in the book include: next generation sequencing, DNA barcoding, application of miRNAs, plant derived vaccines, functional foods, genes involved in secondary metabolite production, commercial application of hairy roots technology, molecular breeding of Capsicum, application of high throughput molecular techniques for animal breeding, and application of microbial fuel cells.

Contents: Preface. 1. Next Generation Sequencing and Its Utilization for Managing the Plant Genetic Resources. 2. DNA Barcoding: Current Trends and Future Prospects. 3. DNA Barcoding in Plants. 4. MicroRNAs in Plants and Humans. 5. Plant Derived Vaccines: Progress, Innovations, Opportunities and Perspectives. 6. Functional Foods and Realities of Personalized Nutrition. 7. Associating the Genes to Functions, Involved in Secondary Metabolism of Plants. 8. Advances in Molecular Breeding of Capsicum Species. 9. Hairy Roots and their Multiple Applications. 10. Application of High Throughput Molecular Techniques for Breeding of Farm Animals against Major Diseases. 11. Microbial Fuel Cells for Bioenergy Production through Wastewater Treatment. 12. Female Genital Tuberculosis and its Relationship with Infertility. Index.
