About this book

Root hairs, the tip-growing extensions of root epidermal cells, are a model system for answering many plant cell and developmental biology research questions. This book, written by experts in the field, covers the research up to 2008 on cellular, genetic, electrophysiological and developmental aspects of root hair growth, as well as the interaction of root hairs with rhizobia and mycorrhizae in the establishment of symbiosis. With a wealth of information on technical and experimental aspects useful in the laboratory, this comprehensive book is a valuable resource for researchers and students in the broad field of plant cell and molecular biology.

About the authors

Prof. Anne Mie C. Emons

Studied Biology (MSc 1969, cum laude) at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and after a family break completed her PhD at the same university in 1986. Postdoctoral studies at Wageningen University in 1987, and at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK, on an EMBO grant in 1988 in the department of Dr. Keith Roberts. From 1988 Assistant, Associate and later Full Professor at Wageningen University, laboratory of Plant Cell Biology and since 2002 Advisor Bio-organization FOM Institute AMOLF, Theory Biomolecular Matter group.

Major research interests: Plant cell biology, cell polymers: actin filaments, microtubules and cellulose microfibrils, plant cell cyto-architecture, tip growth, legume root hair, rhizobium interaction

Dr. Tijs Ketelaar

Studied Plant Breeding (MSc 1996) at Wageningen University, the Netherlands, followed by a PhD at the Laboratory of Plant Cell Biology at Wageningen University in 2002. From 2001 to 2004 Postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Professor Patrick Hussey at the University of Durham, UK, followed by a VENI fellowship of the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) at the Laboratory of Plant Cell Biology of Wageningen University (2004-2007). Since 2007 Assistant Professor at the same laboratory.

Research interests: cytoskeleton, plant cell cyto-architecture, polar cell expansion, root hairs

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Edited by Emons and Ketelaar … this 18-chapter book, part of the ‘Plant Cell Monographs’ series, is a current review of the subject by experts in their respective field of research. … In addition to offering a well-written and edited synopsis of … topics, each chapter includes one or more detailed methods or protocols that are germane to the topic. … useful reference for researchers or advanced students in the field. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty." (L. M. Baird, Choice, Vol. 46 (11), 2009)
