Plant gene silencing: Mechanisms and applications

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Main Description: Plant gene silencing is a crucially important phenomenon in gene expression and epigenetics. This book describes the way small RNA is produced and acts to silence genes, its likely origins in defence against viruses, and also its potential to improve plants. Plant gene silencing can be used to improve industrial traits, make plants more nutritious or more valuable to consumers, to remove allergens, and to improve resistance to weeds and pathogens Readership: Suitable for students and researchers in applied genetics and molecular biology of plants.
