Abstract

This chapter highlights the role of plants as an important source of new drugs and as a source of lead compounds for the design and development of novel pharmaceuticals for research and development. It describes current technologies used for the production of medicinal compounds in plant cell cultures. It also discusses future prospects in plant metabolic engineering and its role in the efficient production of plant secondary metabolites.
