...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... -The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2010 This handbook spans over several aspects of current and emerging technologies in the field. The editors - two of the leading experts in research with a proven track record - combine their expertise to provide an invaluable reference on the topic. To make it more inclusive, this second volume in the Molecular Plant Biology Handbook Series is divided into four main parts:* Transcriptome Analysis* Gene Silencing, Mutation Analysis, and Functional Genomics* Computational Analysis* Functional Genomics and Emerging Technologies Each chapter introduces the subject comprehensively, and provides state-of-the art experimental protocols. A handy glossary of relevant technical terms is included to facilitate reading for researchers, teachers and students.
