Undoubtedly, the book would serve as a one-stop-shop for gaining knowledge on molecular markers, genomics, transcriptomics, in vitro culture and genetic engineering of plantation crops. This book would stimulate healthy scientific discussions and help further the research interests of plantation crops. It would serve post-graduate students, researchers and academicians, who are involved in biotechnology related aspects of plantation crops.
