About this book

Plant Metabolomics introduces plant metabolomics which is an important part of systems biology. It can be argued that metabolite data is most closely linked to phenotypes. Therefore changes in metabolite content or metabolic networks can indicate gene function more directly than transcript or protein based-approaches. Additionally, the discovery of metabolic markers has important applications in the early diagnosis of many diseases.

Plant Metabolomics, written by researchers who are active in plant metabolomics of China, not only introduces the latest advances of plant metabolomics and analyzes the development trend in the next few years, but also demonstrates new studies of authors in their respective scientific projects, reflecting the current state of domestic plant metabolomics research.
