Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of Plant Organelles: by Dr. Henry Daniell, Dr. Christine Chase (auth.), Dr. Henry

By Dr. Henry Daniell, Dr. Christine Chase (auth.), Dr. Henry Daniell, Dr. Christine Chase (eds.)

We have taught plant molecular biology and biotechnology on the undergraduate and graduate point for over twenty years. long ago few many years, the sector of plant organelle molecular biology and biotechnology has made sizeable strides. From the golf green revolution to golden rice, plant organelles have revolutionized agriculture. Given the exponential progress in study, the matter of discovering applicable textbooks for classes in plant biotechnology and molecular biology has turn into an immense problem. After years of handing out photocopies of varied magazine articles and studies scattered via out the print and digital media, a serendipitous assembly happened on the 2002 IATPC global Congress held in Orlando, Florida. After my speak and comparing a number of posters awarded through investigators from my laboratory, Dr. Jacco Flipsen, Publishing supervisor of Kluwer Publishers requested me no matter if i might think about modifying a ebook on Plant Organelles. I accredited this problem, after months of deliberations, basically simply because i used to be unsuccessful find a textual content ebook during this zone for a few years. I signed the agreement with Kluwer in March 2003 with a promise to convey a camera-ready textbook on July 1, 2004. Given the quick cut-off date and the complexity of the duty, I fast discovered this job would wish a co-editor. Dr. Christine Chase was once the 1st scientist who got here to my brain due to her services in plant mitochondria, and he or she comfortably agreed to paintings with me in this book.

2003). The fact that proteins encoded by mitochondrial genetic relicts have been shown to be targeted to these newly discovered organelles (Williams and Keeling, 2003) strengthens the view that hydrogenosomes and mitosomes are derived mitochondria, and that none of the organisms containing them is primitively amitochondriate. These observations have substantially reduced the number of candidate amitochondriate protist lineages (Roger and Silberman, 2002) to two poorly studied groups: retortamonads and oxymonads (see Roger, 1999; Simpson and Roger, 2004).
