About this book

To comprehend the organizational principle of cellular functions at diff erent levels, an integrative approach with large-scale experiments, the so-called ‘omics’ data including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, is needed. Omics aims at the collective characterization and quantifi cation of pools of biological molecules that translate into the structure, function, and dynamics of an organism or organisms. Currently, omics is an essential tool to understand the molecular systems that underlie various plant functions. Furthermore, in several plant species, the development of omicsresources has progressed to address the particular biological properties of individual species. Integration of knowledge from omics-based research is an emerging issue as researchers seek to identify significance, gain biological insights and promote translational research. From these perspectives, we intend to provide the emerging aspects of plant systems research based on omics and bioinformatics analyses together with their associated resources and technological advances. Th e present book covers a wide range of omics topics, and discusses the latest trends and application area of plant sciences. In this volume, we have highlighted the working solutions as well as open problems and future challenges in plant omics studies. We believe that this book will initiate and introduce readers to state-of-the-art developments and trends in omics-driven research.

He has also to his credit more than 70 research publications in peer reviewed international journals, including 30 book chapters with international publishers. He is also the Editorial board member and reviewer of several high impact international Journals. Dr. Hakeem is currently engaged in studying the plant processes at ecophysiological as well as proteomic levels. 

Dr. Güzin Tombuloğlu (PhD) is working as a Assistant Professor  at the Pathology Laboratory Techniques Programme of Vocational School of Medical Sciences, Fatih University, Istanbul, Turkey. She has received her MSc.(Biology) degree in 2008  and PhD (Biotechnology) degree in 2014 from Fatih University. She has studied transcriptomics identification of barley boron tolerance mechanism during her PhD. She has experienced several projects on abiotic stress, plant stress responses, Boron toxicity and transcriptomics. She has given several courses on teaching biology education for ten years. She also worked as a Chairman in Pathology Laboratory Techniques Programme and Assistant Manager at Vocational School of Medical Sciences at Fatih University.
