Enhancing plant traits by traditional methods like cross-pollination, grafting, and cross-breeding is time-consuming. Biotech advances allow for specific changes to be made quickly, on a molecular level through over-expression or deletion of genes, or the introduction of foreign genes. The latter is possible using gene expression control mechanisms such as specific gene promoters and transcription factors, Salient Achievements of Crop Biotechnology Herbicide Tolerant Crop Plants; Engineering for Virus Resistance, Crop plants Resistant to Insect Attack, Resistance to Pathogenic Fungi and Bacteria.
