About this book

Outstanding contributors review, not only knowledge on the most important classes of cell cycle regulators, but also summarize the various processes in which cell cycle control plays a pivotal role.

'In conclusion, the "Plant Cell Cycle" gives a solid and exhaustive overview of the plant cell cycle and should also interest a large range of readers outside of the very specialised plant cell cycle field.' Plant Science, 160 (2001) 'Dirk Inze performed a Herculean task in assembling these papers and ensuring a very high level of scientific excellence throughout. It is undoubtedly a must for plant cell cycle research labs and should be acquired by libraries. It is perfect for graduate students setting off on plant cell cycle research, and if they talk nicely to close relatives it may find its way into their festive stocking providing it is a big one.' Annals of Botany Company, (2001)
