About this book

This book presents a timely review of the latest advances in rhizosphere biology, which have been facilitated by the application of omics tools. It includes chapters on the use of various omics tools in rhizosphere biology, focusing on understanding plant and soil microbe interactions. The role of proteomics and metagenomics in research on symbiotic association is also discussed in detail. The book also includes chapters on the use of omics tools for the isolation of functional biomolecules from rhizospheric microorganisms. The book’s respective sections describe and provide detailed information on important omics tools, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and meta-epigenomics. In turn, the book promotes and describes the combined use of plant biology, microbial ecology, and soil sciences to design new research strategies and innovative methods in soil biology. Lastly, it highlights the considerable potential of the rhizosphere in terms of crop productivity, bioremediation, ecological engineering, plant nutrition and health, as well as plant adaptation to stress conditions.

This book offers both a practical guide and reference source for all scientists working in soil biology, plant pathology, etc. It will also benefit students studying soil microbiology, and researchers studying rhizosphere structure. 

About the authors

Dr. Ramesh Namdeo Pudake is an Assistant Professor in Amity University Uttar Pradesh – one of the top ranked private universities in India. Dr. Pudake is a PhD in Crop Genetics and Breeding from China Agricultural University, Beijing, PRC. After his PhD he is engaged in research in a range of organisms but with a focus on crop plant genomics. He has also worked in the Department of Agronomy at Iowa State University Ames, IA, USA on host-pathogen interaction and gene mapping. Currently he is focusing on the research on different application genomics in plant-pathogen interaction. Dr. Pudake has published more than 35 research publications, 2 books, 15 book chapters. He also has one scholarship award from Chinese Government for pursuing his doctoral studies. He is an expert reviewer for several journals of repute. 

Dr. Maya Kumari is working as Scientist-E in Directorate of Life sciences, Defence Research and Development Organization, Govt. of India; and has more than 12 years of research experience in the field of plant molecular biology. Her research work in functional and molecular breeding for detection of molecular mechanism of plant biotic stress tolerance is of high scientific and social relevance. Currently she is coordinating various projects related to biological defence technologies and acting as interface between army, industry and DRDO Labs. She has published more than 40 research papers, and act as reviewer for scientific articles in reputed journals. Besides her published work, Dr. Maya persuaded to achieve many awards including Masters Gold Medal, Endeavour Research Scholarship, DEST, Australia, to carry out research at CLIMA, UWA, Australia, Young Women Scientist Scholarship, Department of Science and Technology, Junior/ Senior Research Fellow of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Govt. of India, Chinese Government Scholarship, China Scholarship Council, P.R. of China. 

Dr. Binod Bihari Sahu has been working in Department of Life Science at National Institute of Technology Rourkela since 2014 as an Assistant Professor. His current work is focused on translational research in rice blast and sheath blight resistance. Dr. Sahu worked as a post-doctoral research associate at Iowa State University for 5 years with focus on nonhost resistance in Arabidopsis against soybean fungal pathogens, Phytophtora sojae and Fusarium virguliforme. He identified few NHR genes and got a US patent. Besides biotic stress research experience he worked with abiotic stress in his Ph.D. thesis from Institute of Life Sciences Bhubaneswar. He published the key findings of research with 18 articles in international Journals, 6 book chapters and is working as academic editor to PLOS ONE in addition to reviewer to several research journals. 

Prof. Anil K. Sharma is a Professor at Department of Biological Sciences, CBSH, and Director of Extension Education, G.B. of Pant University of Agriculture & Technology in Pantnagar. He completed his postdoctoral studies at the GSU, Louisiana (USA), and has been a Visiting Scientist at the University of Basel, Switzerland (2003) and University of Helsinki, Finland (2013). He has extensive research and teaching experience and served as a reviewer for various funding bodies and international research journals. He also holds two patents in plant biology and microbiology, respectively. The recipient of various prestigious grants, he has published more than 90 research articles and 30 review articles, as well as two books with prominent publishers.
