2013 : [BOOK]Genetics and Genomics of Rice
webmaster Posted on 2013/9/4 10:18:08 ( 738 reads )

One of the most in-depth studies of rice genetics and genomics
Covers special topics pertaining to the rice genome, including the documentation of tools and resources for functional analysis of the rice genome
Features numerous color illustrations and photographs

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the advances in genetics and genomics research on rice. The chapters feature the latest developments in rice research and cover such topics as the tools and resources for the functional analysis of rice genes, the identification of useful genes for rice improvement, the present understanding of rice development and biological processes, and the application of this present understanding towards rice improvement. The volume also features a perspective on synthesis and prospects, laying the groundwork for future advances in rice genetics and genomics.

Written by authorities in the field, Genetics and Genomics of Rice will serve as an invaluable reference for rice researchers for years to come.
