Metabolomics is the analysis of all metabolites such as metabolic intermediates, hormones and so on, in a given system such as a cell, an organ or a whole organism. It is complementary to the genomics and proteomic analysis of a system and an essential building block towards the understanding of a whole biological system. Being a relatively new approach, a number of techniques have been recently developed in order to experimentally analyse metabolites and many researchers are expanding into this field. Knowledge about the metabolic status of a system is critical for its comprehensive understanding and metobolomics is an important tool for systems biologists.
This is the newest title in the successful Molecular Plant Biology Handbook Series. Just like the other titles in the series, The Handbook of Plant Metabolomics presents an excellent overview of different approaches and techniques in the subject. Contributors are either from ivy-league research institutions or from companies developing new technologies in this dynamic and fast-growing field. With its approach to introduce current techniques in plant metabolomics to a wider audience and with many labs and companies considering to introduce metabolomics for their research, this book is intended for molecular biologists, geneticists, biotechnologists, plant physiologists, gene technologists, protein chemists, biotechnological industry personel and the pharmaceutical industry.
With uniform chapter design with summaries and comprehensive glossary, the Kahl books are in addition a trusted brand for the plant science community.
