Methods for Plant Molecular Biology is a collection of articles that focuses on the techniques used in plant molecular biology and genetics. The book discusses the isolation and characterization of nuclear, chloroplast, and mitochondrial nucleic acids and the factors and systems involved in transcription and gene expression. Procedures for the isolation of cell walls, chloroplast membranes, membrane proteins; techniques to carry out plant cell culture and protoplast formation; and methods for gene and organelle transfer are covered as well. Biologists, molecular biologists, botanists, and students will find the book very useful.
