This volume provides a timely overview of plant nutritional genomics, which is defined as the interaction between a plant's genome and its nutritional characteristics. It is directed at researchers and professionals in plant molecular biology, physiology and biochemistry.
7. Mapping links between the genome and ionome in plants
8. Transcriptional profiling of membrane transporters
9. Exploring natural genetic variation to improve plant nutrient content.
10. Mapping nutritional traits in crop plants
11. Sustainable crop nutrition: constraints and opportunities
12. Methods to improve the crop-delivery of minerals to humans and livestock.
14. Using plants to manage sites contaminated with heavy metals
The book is divided into 13 chapters covering three distinct topics: the molecular physiology of individual nutrients, methods for studying plant nutritional genomics, and applications of the knowledge gained. "This is a really good book that should be part of the personal library of all those working in plant nutrition. It should also be consulted by those who want to keep abreast of recent developments or use it as a basis for an initial but integrated introduction to the molecular physiology of nutrient acquisition and assimilation and how this knowledge can potentially be exploited. It will also be useful to those preparing advanced undergraduate or graduate-level lecture courses in plant nutrition." Roger A Leigh - Annals of Botany
