Prospects of transgenic fruit crops: A review paper
Rajni Rajan, JK Chavda, CJ Joshi and Mutteppa Gotur
The major goal of plant scientists is to find ways to maintain high productivity under stress as well as developing crops with enhanced nutritional value in the era of increasing human population and climate change. Transgenic crops can prove to be powerful complements to those produced by conventional methods for meeting the worldwide demand for quality foods. Crops developed by transgenes can not only be used to enhance yields and nutritional quality but also for increased tolerance to various biotic and abiotic stresses. Although there have been some expressions of concern about biosafety and health hazards associated with genetically modified (GM) crops, there is no reason to hesitate in consuming genetically-engineered food crops that have been thoughtfully developed and carefully tested. In this review, we focus on the major prospects of transgenic fruit crops.
