Plant Proteomics Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Plant Proteomics
edited by Christine Finnie

Plant Proteomics highlights the ways in which proteome analysis has been used to probe the complexities of plant biochemistry and physiology.

This book is aimed at researchers in plant biochemistry, genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics who wish to gain an up-to-date insight into plant proteomes, the information plant proteomics can yield and the directions plant proteome research is taking.
