About this book

The past fifteen years have witnessed major advances in epigenetics, one of the most popular and quickly evolving fields of modern science. In Plant Epigenetics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the most recent developments, examining in great detail the contribution of epigenetic regulation to cell function in plants. Chapters include a variety of protocols for studying the function of small non-coding RNAs, DNA methylation, and histone modifications in plants, often in different degrees of complexity. This volume describes bioinformatic approaches to the analysis of high-throughput data, such as bisulfite sequencing and Chip-on-chip assays. It features much-desired protocols for plant transgenesis and the analysis of genome stability, with a detailed discussion of their applications to epigenetic studies. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Wide-ranging and innovative, Plant Epigenetics: Methods and Protocols is an invaluable manual designed to help researchers uncover the undiscovered and unexplained phenomena in plant biology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book by Kovalchuk and Zemp is a successful attempt to provide the most recent approaches for identifying epigenetic variation in plants. … it is without doubts that the publication should be in every bookcase of molecular scientists interested in epigenetics. I can also recommend it for plant ecologists and evolutionists engaged in epigenetic variation in plants because some methods can be a good improvement of the currently commonly used approaches.” (Vit Latzel, Folia Geobotanica, Vol. 48, 2013)
