Hans-Walter Heldt In cooperation with Fiona Heldt An update and translation of the German third edition
This textbook is written for students and is the product of more than three decades of my teaching experience. It intends to give a broad but concise overview of the various aspects of plant biochemistry, including molecular biology. I have attached importance to an easily understood description of the principles of metabolism but also have restricted the content in such a way that a student is not distracted by unnecessary details. In view of the importance of plant biotechnology, industrial applications of plant biochemistry have been pointed out wherever appropriate. Thus, special attention has been given to the generation and utilization of transgenic plants.
