About this book


 Plant Cell Morphogenesis: Methods and Protocols provides a collection of experimental techniques used in current research on the cellular aspects of plant morphogenesis. Methods and techniques include contemporary takes on  classical light microscopy  and  histochemistry through automated microscopy applications, use of advanced optical tools, quantitative image analysis, study of cellular dynamics of apical meristems, specialized  electron microscopy  techniques, and methods  used to study specific model plant cell types and protocols for using heterologous expression in yeast to study cell  morphogenesis genes. Individual chapters in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format are written by  expert researchers in the field and  include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
