About this book


This volume presents protocols that analyze and explore gene regulatory networks (GRNs) at different levels in plants. This book is divided into two parts: Part I introduces different experimental techniques used to study genes and their regulatory interactions in plants. Part II highlights different computational approaches used for the integration of experimental data and bioinformatics-based predictions of regulatory interactions. This part of the book also provides information on essential database resources that grant access to gene-regulatory and molecular interactions in different plant genomes, with a specific focus on Arabidopsis thaliana. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Thorough and cutting-edge, Plant Gene Regulatory Networks: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for scientists and researchers interested in expanding their knowledge of GRNs.
