Genetic Engineering of Cotton

  • Norma L. Trolinder
Part of the Plant Genetics and Genomics: Crops and Models book series (PGG, volume 3)


The words biotechnology, genetic engineering, molecular biology, and high throughput genomic analysis have engendered awe, doubtfulness, ambivalence, and hope from scientists and the public alike. The technologies justify the responses, for they are undoubtedly the most powerful biological research tools in existence today. They are not, however, new tools that have suddenly burst upon us. Rather, as with most new tools, the scientific community has been slowly developing them for decades. We must regard them as tools to address and solve real problems not as ends unto themselves. Genetic engineering of cotton has proven to be a very challenging undertaking but despite the challenges, Cotton has led the way for acceptance of genetically engineered crop plants and today the industry stands on a new threshold, with another new set of tools for understanding the cotton genome. It is with that foundation that we move forward today.
