About this book

This volume provides a comprehensive compilation of techniques and protocols used in plant and food carotenoid research. Chapters guide readers through seven major areas on core enzyme activities, analysis of carotenoid profiles, new imaging tools, synthesis and degradation dynamics, biotechnology, nutrition, and health. 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.

 

Authoritative and cutting-edge, Plant and Food Carotenoids: Methods and Protocols aims to be helpful to researchers of other disciplines that are impacted by carotenoids, including photosynthesis, biotechnology, food science, and nutrition.
