Plant Cell Biology, volume 160 in "Methods in Cell Biology", includes chapters on modern experimental procedures and applications developed for research in the broad area of plant cell biology. Topics covered in this volume include techniques for imaging and analyzing membrane dynamics and movement across membranes; cell wall composition, structure and mechanics; cytoskeleton dynamics and organization; cell development; ion channel physiology; cell mechanics; and methods related to quantifying cell morphogenesis.

Key Features

  • Provide in-depth procedures and application notes from selected experts who developed the methods
  • Each chapter will include figures and movies as appropriate to explain complex techniques
  • Chapters will include caveats of techniques and future prospects


Cell biologists, biophysicists and physiologists who study plant cells and wish to expand their expertise to include new approaches
