Abstract: There is great potential for biotechnology as a tool in crop breeding. Despite the risk in such upstream research, many plant breeders are becoming more involved in this work to facilitate the rapid exploitation of new techniques. Genetic manipulation of plants involving tissue culture, restriction fragment length polymorph isms, isozymes, and incorporation of genes from wild species is creating a meteoric revolution for plant breeders. To keep abreast of the rapid developments in this field, nearly 50 participants from developed and develiping countries attended the Second International Symposium on Genetic Manipulation in Crops at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), El Batan, Mexico. August 29-31, 1988. This meeting was a follow-up to the First International Symposium on Genetic Manipulation in Crops held Oct. 22-26, 1984, in Beijing, China.
