Fungal Biology in the Origin and Emergence of Life

Editorial: Cambridge University Press 2013, ISBN 9781107652774

Autor/es: David Moore

 The rhythm of life on Earth includes several strong themes contributed by Kingdom Fungi. So why are fungi ignored when theorists ponder the origin of life? Casting aside common theories that life originated in an oceanic primeval soup, in a deep, hot place, or even a warm little pond, this is a mycological perspective on the emergence of life on Earth. The author traces the crucial role played by the first biofilms – products of aerosols, storms, volcanic plumes and rainout from a turbulent atmosphere – which formed in volcanic caves 4 billion years ago. Moore describes how these biofilms contributed to the formation of the first prokaryotic cells, and later, unicellular stem eukaryotes, highlighting the role of the fungal grade of organisation in the evolution of higher organisms. Based on the latest research, this is a unique account of the origin of life and its evolutionary diversity to the present day.

Methodologies for Metabolomics. Experimental Strategies and Techniques

Editorial: Cambridge University Press 2013, ISBN 9780521765909

Autor/es: Norbert W. Lutz, FranceJonathan V. Sweedler, Ron A. Wevers (Eds.)

Metabolomics, the global characterization of the small molecule complement involved in metabolism, has evolved into a powerful suite of approaches for understanding the global physiological and pathological processes occurring in biological organisms. The diversity of metabolites, the wide range of metabolic pathways, and their divergent biological contexts require a range of methodological strategies and techniques. Methodologies for Metabolomics provides a comprehensive description of the newest methodological approaches in metabolomic research. The most important technologies used to identify and quantify metabolites including nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry are highlighted. The integration of these techniques with classical biological methods is also addressed. Furthermore, the book presents statistical and chemometric methods for evaluation of the resultant data. The broad spectrum of topics includes a vast variety of organisms, samples, and diseases, ranging from in vivo metabolomics in humans and animals, to in vitro analysis of tissue samples, cultured cells and biofluids.

Plant Virology, 5th Edition

Editorial: Academic Press, ISSN 9780123848710

Autor/es: Roger Hull

The seminal text Plant Virology is now in its fifth edition. It has been 10 years since the publication of the fourth edition, during which there has been an explosion of conceptual and factual advances. The fifth edition of Plant Virology updates and revises many details of the previous edition while retaining the important earlier results that constitute the field's conceptual foundation. Revamped art, along with fully updated references and increased focus on molecular biology, transgenic resistance, aphid transmission, and new, cutting-edge topics, bring the volume up to date and maintain its value as an essential reference for researchers and students in the field.

Plant Virology Protocols

Editorial: Humana Press, ISBN 978-1-58829-827-0

Autor/es: Foster, G., Johansen, E., Hong, Y., Nagy, P. (Eds.)

Each section of Plant Virology Protocols, Second Edition presents the most novel methods and protocols to allow researchers more effective approaches to study plant viruses. The many subjects covered in this important new edition range from techniques for investigating viral nucleic acid sequence, protein analysis and investigation of protein function, techniques for microscopy/GFP visualization and analysis/protein tagging/generation of infectious clones and other such tools, as well as areas of genomics and interactions with host factors and plant-based studies.  

Essential Plant Pathology, Second Edition

Editorial: APS PRESS ISBN 978-0-89054-381-8

Autor/es: Gail L. Schumann and Cleora J. D’Arcy

Essential Plant Pathology, Second Edition is completely updated with color throughout and is packaged with a new DVD that includes more extras for students and professors alike. The first edition of this best selling textbook was carefully reviewed by subject matter specialists and plant pathology course instructors to help update the content, especially some of the quickly changing molecular aspects of host-parasite interactions. This new edition includes an important new section to teach students about gene silencing using RNA interference.
