CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Amino acids and peptides as mediators of abiotic stress tolerance in higher plants.

This chapter discusses the role of amino acids and peptides in mediating abiotic stress tolerance in higher plants. The pathways involved in plant responses to abiotic stress (such as salinity, ambient temperature, drought, acid rain, anoxia and heavy metal contamination) are highly complex,...

Cover for Principles of forest biotechnology.

This chapter describes the principles of forest biotechnology. To genetically engineer a tree, a single, transformed cell must be regenerated into a whole plant. Agrobacterium tumefaciens is commonly used as a vehicle to transform (introduce genetic material) into the chromosome of a plant cell,...

Cover for Differential transcriptome profiling for identification of cellulose degrading enzymes in <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ctenolepisma longicaudata</i>.

This chapter presents the results of RNA-sequencing in silverfish (Ctenolepisma longicaudata) to identify cellulase genes and their differential expression in the foregut. Transcriptomes from insects fed on 4 diets consisting of different cellulosic substrates were compared to characterize the...

Cover for Epigenome editing in crop improvement.

This chapter deals with one of the newest techniques on the horizon, i.e. 'epigenome editing' (epigenetics = heritable alterations in chromatin architecture that do not involve changes in the underlying DNA sequence but greatly affect gene expression and impact cellular function). Epigenome editing ...

Cover for Bioinformatics approaches for pathway reconstruction in orphan crops - a new paradigm.

This chapter outlines approaches for gene assembly and gene annotation of orphan crops (including sugarcane) that allow for sequence assembly even if no closely related sequence is available. It demonstrates the utility of full text mining for gene annotation and pathway discovery and shows that it ...
