About this book

In this incisive, concise overview of this booming field, the editors - two of the leading figures in the field with a proven track record - combine their expertise to provide an invaluable reference on the topic. Following a treatment of transcriptome analysis, the book goes on to discuss replacement and mutation analysis, gene silencing and computational analysis. The whole is rounded off with a look at emerging technologies.

Each chapter is accompanied by a concise overview, helping readers to quickly identify topics of interest, while important, carefully selected words and concepts are explained in a handy glossary. This is equally accessible to both experienced scientists and newcomers to the field.

Media reviews

... I recommend this book to any plant researcher who is interested in incorporating functional genomics approaches or who is looking to expand their repertoire. I especially liked that most chapters include detailed 'recipes', which show that anyone with a standard wet laboratory can do most of the procedures... a very useful volume... -The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2010
