Description

Plant genomics is a growing and constantly evolving field of study, one which has gained much ground in past years through the development of advanced research and data management tools. In Plant Genomics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the current issues and methodologies of this expanding field, specifically addressing areas of gene discovery and the functional analysis of genes with a focus on the primary tools and sub-disciplines of genetic mapping, mRNA, protein and metabolite profiling. Chapters employ exciting new methods to investigate molecular plant breeding technology and gene functional analysis via transformation, mutation, protein function, and gene expression. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and innovative, Plant Genomics: Methods and Protocols is an essential guide for all plant scientists who are interested in further studies in the area of genomics research.show more

Review quote

From the reviews:"The book is latest volume in the series `Methods in Molecular Biology' ... . The volume `Plant Genomics. Methods and Protocols' concerns a wide spectrum of problems, some of them outside of the main scope of the field ... . In summary, `Plant Genomics. Methods and Protocols' can be recommended as a valuable source of timely information for students, researchers and breeders." (Pawel Sowinski, Acta Biochimica Polonica, December, 2009)"This book is part of the very successful Methods in Molecular Biology series that provides research protocols and methodologies for biological scientists. ... the book does succeed in covering a wide range of topics and will therefore be a useful addition to university libraries. ... In summary, the book is well written with some informative and detailed protocols for plant molecular biologists ... ." (Stephen Byrne and Toni Wendt, Annals of Botany, Vol. 107 (4), 2011)show more
