Topics:
The second generation plant biotechnology that produce medical and industrial
materials of high value in plant began to

get attention. The second generation plant
biotechnology is applied in various fields such as molecular farming which produce high value
usefulness protein, plant vaccine which produce vaccine about specific disease and
environmental purgation which remov
e atmosphere
-
, soil
-

and/or water
-
pollutants. In this class,
current and up
-
to
-
date trend of overall plant biotechnology would be grasped.
