Plant Genome Diversity. Volume 1: Plant genomes, their residents, and their evolutionary dynamics.2012. illus. 300 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
This Volume deals with information aboutplant genome sequencing projects. This is followed by more focused chapters on the various genomic residents of plant genomes, including transposable elements, centromeres, small RNAs, and the evolutionary dynamics of genes and non-coding sequences. Attention is drawn to advances in the understanding of plant mitochondrial and plastid genomes, as well as the significance of duplication in genic evolution and the non-independent evolution among sequences in plant genomes. Finally this book provides an introduction to the new frontier of plant epigenomics, describing the current state of knowledge and the evolutionary implications of the epigenomic landscape.
