Advances in molecular and cell biology have led to the development of a whole range of techniques for manipulating genomes, collectively termed “biotechnology”.

Although much of the focus in the plant sciences has been on the direct manipulation of plant genomes, biotechnology has also catalyzed a renewed emphasis on the importance of biological and genetic. Plant biotechnologies that assist in developing new varieties and traits include genetics and genomics, marker-assisted selection (MAS), and transgenic (genetic engineered) crops.

These biotechnologies allow researchers to detect and map genes, discover their functions, select for specific genes in genetic resources and breeding, and transfer genes for specific traits into. Plant biotechnology or genetic engineering allows breeders to modify plants in an effort to meet the demands of a fast-growing global community.

Many plant biotechnology companies and universities are behind a wave of patent claims on hundreds of genes that confer tolerance to herbicides and biotic and abiotic stresses; genes that improve wood.
