Gene mining for various biotic and abiotic stresses could be utilized only when we can transfer them to our important crops so that a large number of the population can be benefitted by this. In this light gene transfer through various methods can be done and it will be more useful where traditional breeding approach is not feasible. However, transgenic research in fruit crops is very low so that present information will be utilized by fruit breeders to a design future program for developing transgenic that ultimately open the way for those crops where gene transfer is difficult through conventional breeding.
