Plant Metabolomics: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology #860) (Hardcover)
Estimation of the metabolite complement of plant material involves a wide range of techniques and technologies and that breadth continues to increase. Metabolomics research typically involves multiple sites for material preparation and analysis and most investigations are "high throughput", meaning that chemical analysis of sample sets are inevitably carried out over an extended period of time. In, Plant Metabolomics: Methods and Protocols expert researchers in the field detail many of the stages which are now commonly used to study plant metabolomics workflow. Stages of this workflow, up to and including the statistical analysis, accurate and detailed collection of meta-data are also essential for good process management, to satisfy reporting requirements and to ensure wider interpretability and reuse results.Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology(TM) series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Through and intuitive Plant Metabolomics: Methods and Protocols, seeks to aid scientists in the further study of the methods for all the stages of the plant metabolomics workflow.
