Plant Biotechnology for Health
In this book emphasis will be put in the relevance of Plant Biotechnology for producing compounds of pharmaceutical and industrial relevance specifically the contribution of in vitro plant cell cultures for producing recombinant proteins (molecular farming) and compounds produced by plants useful for human and animal health (secondary metabolites) will be discussed. Also the description of some process held by whole plants will be included. The aim will be to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings for professionals and researchers working in the field of Plant Biotechnology, molecular farming and biochemical engineering.
It will have chapters related to successful cases in secondary metabolites production and molecular farming using in vitro plant cell culturesIt will be a review of the latest news related to Plant Biotechnology including molecular farming, secondary metabolism, mathematical modelling, etcFocus will be in the in vitro platform for their advantages related to biosafety and controlled conditions of work that overcomes the disadvantages of plant growing in the field
