About this book


This work is a compiled catalogue of such findings, where several NGS technologies ranging from the genomics, transcriptomics, metagenomics, single cell genomics, QTL, patho-genomics and patho-transcriptomics have been applied to delineate the mystery of the associated mutations, biological pathway transitions, transcriptional fluxes and patterns of host associated or adaptations to certain climatic conditions. The aims and scope of this book focuses more on the biological underpinning to initiate the cross-talks across the traits acquired or lost during the course of evolution. The structured framework of the present volume provides the applicative point of view of the NGS technologies and demonstrates the conceptual way of linking the experimentation to the NGS technologies, to aid in researchers to place their biological hypothesis in a larger context.
