By Michael W. Gray, John M. Archibald (auth.), Ralph Bock, Volker Knoop (eds.)

The prior decade has witnessed an explosion of our wisdom at the constitution, coding potential and evolution of the genomes of the 2 DNA-containing cellphone organelles in vegetation: chloroplasts (plastids) and mitochondria. Comparative genomics analyses have supplied new insights into the beginning of organelles via endosymbioses and exposed a huge evolutionary dynamics of organellar genomes. moreover, they've got significantly helped to elucidate phylogenetic relationships, specifically in algae and early land crops with constrained morphological and anatomical range. This booklet, written via best specialists, summarizes our present wisdom approximately plastid and mitochondrial genomes in all significant teams of algae and land crops. it's also chapters on endosymbioses, plastid and mitochondrial mutants, gene expression profiling and strategies for organelle transformation. The booklet is designed for college students and researchers in plant molecular biology, taxonomy, biotechnology and evolutionary biology.
