A comprehensive collection of new and essential protocols containing many easily reproducible methods developed for use with arabidopsis. The methods range from the basics of growing these plants to sophisticated gene cloning strategies and can, in many cases, also be applied to other plant species with minor modifications.
...especially valuable for detailed step-by-step procedures including many important notes...an indispensable guide, which should be at reach on the shelf in each laboratory where the plant molecular-genetic methods in Arabidopsis, and not only Arabidopsis, are used. - Biologia Plantarum, Reviewer: J. Relichova
