Minireview: Biotechnological Approaches for Sesame and Niger

Sharad Tiwari, Director of the Biotechnology Center of J.N. Agricultural University in India, and colleagues, released a minireview on the biotechnological techniques used for sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) and niger (Guizotia abyssinica L.f. Cass.), minor oilseed crops of subtropical countries. It has been reported that the growing area and production of these crops have declined through time and thus the biotechnological approaches discussed are relevant to catch up with the development of other oilseed crops.
