Genome Mapping in Plants
A succinct summary of current trends in gene mapping in plants distilling an enormous amount of research literature into a digestible portion suitable for biochemists and educated laypersons. The 22 discussions, written by plant scientists around the world, outline the broad principles considered applicable to genome analysis in plant and animals, and also provide in-depth remarks on the most efficient tools and techniques to map common plant taxa such as legumes, cottons, grains, grasses, and pines.

Table of contents
Part 1 Basic principles: an historical perspective; the DNA revolution; making a genetic map; mapping genes responsible for different phenotype; physical mapping - bridging the gap between DNA markers and genes; and with what consequences? new opportunities in life science research; using a genome-based approach. Part 2 Special topics: DNA marker-assisted crop improvement; molecular characterization for plant genetic resources conservation; DNA fingerprinting and plant variety protection; applications of repetitive DNA sequences in plant genome analysis; current status and potential of fluorescence "in situ" hybridization in plant genome mapping; cloning of plant genes based on genetic map position; cloning genes by insertion mutagenesis; analysis of gene expression and gene isolation by high throughput sequencing of plant cDNAs. Part 3 Status of genome mapping in selected plant taxa: the compositae - systematically fascinating, but specifically neglected; current status of genome mapping in the cruciferae; genome mapping in legumes (fam. fabaceae); status of genome mapping in the malvaceae; genome mapping in temperate grains and grasses in the family gramineae (poaceae); status of genome mapping in the tropical grains and grasses (poaceae); status of genome mapping tools in the taxon solonaceae; genome mapping in gymnosperms - a case study in Loblolly Pine.
