Om boka

This textbook is clearly structured with fourteen richly illustrated chapters and practical examples for easy understanding and direct implementation. The methods and findings developed in the authors' group are presented in detailed, revised chapters. Readers will find valuable updates on the molecular basis of biotechnological processes, secondary metabolite production and genetic engineering. In addition, the basic principles of important biotechnologies, as well as examples of specially designed crops that deliver improved productivity under stress conditions, are presented.



This second edition sets the direction for future research on the basic aspects of plant tissue culture and its applications in the fields of secondary metabolite production and genetic engineering. It provides both general and specific information for students, teachers, academic researchers and industrial teams who are interested in new developments in plant tissue culture and its applications.

Om forfatteren

Prof. Dr. Karl-Hermann Neumann (22 May 1936 - 13 October 2009)
Formerly at Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany

Dr. Ashwani Kumar, Born (1946) to Mr. Swami Dayal Tewari and Mrs. Shanti Devi Tewari, at Bandikui, Rajasthan, India. He received B.Sc. at Agra University, M.Sc. (Botany) at University of Rajasthan. He was awarded gold medal for standing first in order of merit. His Ph.D. (1971) was under supervision of Professor H.C. Arya and post-doctoral with Professor Dr. K-H. Neumann, and later on with Professor Dr. Sven Schubert at Justus Liebig Universitat, Giessen, Germany, with Alexander von Humboldt Fellow. His botanist father Professor Swami Dayal Tewari (M.Sc. in Botany) was his first teacher. Professor Ashwani Kumar was also selected in Indian Administrative Services (IAS: IPS) (1972) but he opted a career in Botany being his family subject. His wife Mrs Vijay R. Kumar has also been Professor of Botany at University of Rajasthan in her own stead. He was appointed as Asst. Professor in 1969, Associate Professor in 1985 and Full Professor from 1986 to 2007. Then he was an Adjunct Professor until 2016. He along with members of COC introduced Integrated Biotechnology 5 year course in Rajasthan.



In recognition of his research contributions, Dr. Kumar was awarded Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship for 1977-1979, with several resumption of fellowships until 2017, British Council Visitorship, U.K.(1986); Visiting Professorship at Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University in Japan (1999-2000); Toyama Prefectural University Japan (2011) INSA-DFG visiting Professorship at Germany, 1997. He holds diploma in German language and has certificate in French language. His area of research include photosynthesis in vitro and in vivo, biotic and abiotic resistance, ethno botany, bioenergy and presently understanding salinity resistance in maize. He has also carried out research projects granted by UGC, USDA-ICAR, MNES, CSIR, DST, DBT and FACT. He attended large number of national and international conferences as invited speaker, and served as chair or co-chair in International Botanical Conference, Berlin and EU Biomass conferences. He has published 220 research papers in national and international j
