Description

Methods in Plant Cell Biology provides in two volumes a comprehensive collection of analytical methods essential for researchers and students in the plant sciences. Individual chapters, written by experts in the field, provide an introductory overview, followed by a step-by-step technical description of the methods.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features
@bul:* Written by experts, many of whom have developed the individual methods described
* Contains most, if not all, the methods needed for modern research in plant cell biology
* Up-to-date and comprehensive
* Full references
* Allows quick access to relevant journal articles and to the sources of chemicals required for the procedures
* Selective concentration on higher plant methods allows for particular emphasis on those problems specific to plants

Readership

Graduate students, technicians, post doctoral, and experienced researchers in cell and developmental biology, plant science, agricultural biotechnology, agronomy, and related segments of plant genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, and physiology. Especially useful to plant biologists, plant molecular biologists, plant pathologists, plant cell biologists, plant biotechnologists, and biotechnology company personnel.
