About this book

As a fairly new and expansive area of study, plant systems biology has been approached by scientists from fields as varied as plant physiology and astrophysics, creating a wide variety of techniques and methods to further this vital research.

In "Plant Systems Biology", expert investigators provide cutting-edge chapters dealing with diverse subjects such as systems biology of plant gene expression to analysis of networks, pathways, specific statistical issues and novel computational tools, imaging-based tools as well as chemical genetic, metabolomic and integrative methods that cannot be easily pigeonholed. As a volume in the highly successful "Methods in Molecular Biology" series, this work provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results.

Authoritative and comprehensive, "Plant Systems Biology" is an ideal guide for all researchers who wish to contribute to the evolution of the vibrant field of plant biology.

From the reviews: "For researchers, Belostotsky (biological sciences, U. of Missouri-Kansas City) compiles 20 chapters on plant systems biology ! . Chapters describe how to identify cellular components, interactions among these components, and quantitative approaches to analyze and model interactions, emergent properties, and dynamics of the networks."
