The Handbook of Plant Functional Genomics: Concepts and Protocols
July 2008, Wiley-Blackwell
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.
