Chapter 7 (Page no: 147)

Plant resistance against pests: issues and strategies.

This paper discusses the issues and strategies associated with the utilization of insect resistance in transgenic plants as a valuable tool in integrated pest management. It highlights the importance of the isolation and characterization of insect-resistant transgenes, molecular marker-assisted selection, and the cloning and sequencing of plant resistance genes in the exploitation of host plant resistance to pests.
