About this book

This volume covers a range of methods used in plant cytogenetics, beginning with basic analysis of chromosomes and visualizing gene locations, to manipulating and dissecting chromosomes, and then focusing on less understood features of chromosomes such as recombination initiation sites and epigenomic marks. The methods described in Plant Cytogenetics: Methods and Protocols build on each other and provide, those new to the field, with a comprehensive platform to support their research endeavours, while also introducing advanced techniques to experienced researchers. 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.

Cutting edge and thorough, Plant Cytogenetics: Methods and Protocols, is a valuable resource for anyone who is interested in the diverse and wonderfully complex field of cytogenetics.
