Confidently face the challenges of proteomics research specific to plant science with the information in Plant Proteomics, which will introduce you to the techniques and methodologies required for the study of representative plant species. Read about proteomics studies in Arabidopsis, rice, and legumes and find information about common technologies like mass spectrometry and gel electrophoresis. Discover expression proteomics, functional proteomics, structural proteomics, bioinformatics, and systems biology, understand how to conduct proteomics studies in developing countries and underfunded laboratories, and gain access to guidelines for sample preparation.
Ganesh Kumar Agrawal, PhD, is the Associate Director of the Research Laboratory for Biotechnology and Biochemistry (RLABB) in Kathmandu, Nepal. He earned his doctorate in applied biological chemistry at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in 1998. His research objective is to unravel the "regulatory networks" of the signaling and metabolic pathways in proteomes to improve seed quality and yield in plants using integrated OMICS approaches. Randeep Rakwal, PhD, is presently a researcher on the Tsukuba Mental Stress Team at the Health Technology Research Center (HTRC), National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan. He earned his doctorate in applied biological chemistry at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in 1997. His current research focuses on the genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics of environmental stress responses in plant and animal systems.
