The Handbook of Plant Functional Genomics Concepts and Protocols by Guenter Kahl

The Handbook of Plant Functional Genomics Concepts and Protocols

Part of the Molecular Plant Biology Series


The Handbook of Plant Functional Genomics Concepts and Protocols by Guenter Kahl

In this incisive, concise overview of this booming field, the editors -- two of the leading figures in the field with a proven track record -- combine their expertise to provide an invaluable reference on the topic. Following a treatment of transcriptome analysis, the book goes on to discuss replacement and mutation analysis, gene silencing and computational analysis. The whole is rounded off with a look at emerging technologies. Each chapter is accompanied by a concise overview, helping readers to quickly identify topics of interest, while important, carefully selected words and concepts are explained in a handy glossary. Equally accessible to both experienced scientists and newcomers to the field.


... I recommend this book to any plant researcher who is interested in incorporating functional genomics approaches or who is looking to expand their repertoire. I especially liked that most chapters include detailed 'recipes', which show that anyone with a standard wet laboratory can do most of the procedures... a very useful volume...

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

Sarah Harper

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
