Genetic improvement of sugarcane by transgenic, intragenic and genome editing technologies

Code: 9781838795849
Fredy Altpeter and Ratna Karan, University of Florida, USA

Chapter synopsis: The grand social, economic and environmental challenges of the twenty-first century are demanding the acceleration of the genetic improvement of sugarcane to sustainably produce sugar and biofuel and to support the emerging bio-based economy. This chapter focuses on the contributions and future potential of biotechnology including enabling technologies, transgenic, intragenic and genome editing approaches for the improvement of agronomic sugarcane traits as well as metabolic engineering to develop value-added products and biofuels.
