Plant Genetics

Plant genetics is a very broad term. There are many facets of genetics in general, and of course there are many facets to plants. The definition of genetics is the branch of biology that deals with heredity, especially the mechanisms of hereditary transmission and the variation of inherited characteristics among similar or related organisms. And the definition of a plant is any of various photosynthetic, eukaryotic, multicellular organisms of the kingdom Plantae characteristically producing embryos, containing chloroplasts, having cell walls which contain cellulose, and lacking the power of locomotion. Although there has been a revolution in the biological sciences in the past twenty years, there is still a great deal that remains to be discovered. The completion of the sequencing of the human genome, as well as the genomes of some agriculturally and scientifically important plants (for example rice), has increased the possibilities of genetic research immeasurably.
