Bioinformatics is a new and rapidly evolving field of research that is being driven by the development and application of various 'omics technologies. Plant Bioinformatics focuses on applied bioinformatics with specific applications to crops and model plants. Chapters in this new volume will provide both beginners and experienced researchers with the necessary skills to apply bioinformatics tools for their specialist area, and provide bioinformaticians and computer scientists with an introduction to the different tools and systems available for plant research. Each chapter includes practical examples and highlights common problems encountered in bioinformatics analysis. Protocols in this volume detail EMBL, TAIR, HarvEST, Graingenes, Gramene, BGI-RIS V2, AtEnsEMBL, MaizeGDB, BarleyBase/PLEXdb, SAGE, MPSS, KEGG, BioPerl and more. Plant biologists who have an interest in or requirement for the accessing and manipulation of the huge amount of data being generated by high throughput technologies will find this new volume to be an immeasurable aid in their research.
