Cloning in Plants: New Developments takes into account the process of cloning and plant transformation. It comprises the tools required for cloning and the basic requirement of cloning, cloning and transformation of medicinal plants has also been described. It provides the reader with the fundamental concept of cloning and plant transformation so as to understand the techniques involved in the process of cloning and to learn the concept, features and development of energy cane. This book also discusses about techniques used for vitro cloning of small RNAs, a versatile and simple enzyme-free cloning approach of aqua cloning, virus-induced gene silencing, concept, development and characteristics of energy cane and the concept of IRDL cloning.

Shiv Sanjeevi Sripathi secured second rank in Mumbai University and first rank in his college at his undergrad level and in his college during his Masters and has worked on a stem cell project at the Specialized Centre for Cell Based Therapy (SCCT), KEM Hospital at Mumbai, following which he was a Junior Research Fellow at Microbiology & Cell Biology Department, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore from August 2009 to November 2011. The field of work involved cloning of cell wall genes and transcription factors in E. coli & M. smegmatis. This was followed by a stint as a Research and Development Executive at Transasia Biomedicals, Mumbai where he worked on patent writing and Immunoassays from 2011 till 2013. In 2013, he entered the teaching field where he has been tutoring biology and chemistry to the students of 11th and 12th grades along with English grammar and communication skills to people of all age groups.

Dr Prerna Pandey, a biotechnologist with several years of wet lab research experience, has worked as a senior research fellow at International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi. Her field of research in PhD included isolation and molecular characterization of Geminiviruses, genome sequencing, gene annotation, as well as gene silencing using the RNA interference technology. She has published papers in peer-reviewed journals in the field and has a submitted a number of annotated Geminiviral genome sequences in the GenBank, including two novel ones. Prerna has also completed her editing and proof-reading courses from SfEP, UK and now works as a freelance scientific editor, writer and a subject matter expert. She has edited and co-authored several books on a range of topics in Life-Sciences. When Prerna is not busy with her assignments, she loves visiting historical places.
