Dr. Singh has presented research findings as an invited speaker at national and international meetings. This novel book will be highly useful to students, teachers, and researchers as it is a convenient and comprehensive reference for all plant cytogenetic techniques and protocols. Author content. He has collaborative projects with many countries. "-Plant Science Bulletin on the first edition"… provides an excellent review of various techniques in handling of chromosomes, karyotype analysis, genetics of meiosis, genomic relationships, and chromosome manipulations. The third part discusses cytogenetic techniques (cytology and genetics) for physically locating genes on specific chromosomes. In addition, he summarized his research results by writing eighteen book chapters. ", -Umesh C. Lavania, Department of Botany, Lucknow University. Plant cytogenetics is progressing at an extremely rapid pace since the publication of the Þrst edition of Plant Cytogenetics by CRC Press in 1993. The Chapter on cytogenetic techniques will make the text a classic in its own right.

Chapters describe correct handling of plant chromosomes, methods in plant cytogenetics, cell division, reproduction methods, chromosome nomenclature, karyotype analysis, chromosomal aberrations, genome analysis, transgenic crops, and cytogenetics in plant breeding. A mastery of the cytogenetic phenomena that has been reported for these crops, such as structural and numerical chromosome analyses (Chapter 7) and genome analysis with examples from Glycine, Gossypium, Brassica, Nicotiana and Triticum (Chapter 8) enable one to be completely familiar with the mechanisms of cytogenetics. He has U.S. patents on methods for producing fertile crosses between wild and domestic soybean species.
