Molecular Genetics and Breeding of Forest Trees

Sandeep Kumar (Editor) Matthias Fladung (Editor)
Synopsis This unique single source integrates tree transgenesis, functional genomics, and structural genomics to present, for the first time, a unified approach to research on the molecular biology of forest trees. A distinguished panel of scientists, researchers, and educators from around the world have combined their efforts to present the most up-to-date information on genome mapping, the molecular biology of wood formation and more, with chapters exploring every aspect of this quickly evolving field. Examining EST databases, proteomics, modification of flowering, microsatellite DNA markers, ectomycorrhizal symbiosis, and much more, Molecular Genetics and Breeding of Forest Trees is an important addition to your professional or teaching collection. Helpful tables and figures make important points easy to access and understand.

About the authors

Sandeep Kumar

Sandeep Kumar, PhD, is a tree molecular biologist with a wide range of experience in plant tissue culture, genetic transformation, and tree genomics. He completed his master's and doctorate in India and presently works at the Institute for Forest Genetics and Forest Tree Breeding in Grosshansdorf, Germany. He has been working on genetic transformation of forest trees, stable expression of transgenes, gene silencing, mechanisms of transgene integration in a tree system, and transposon/T-DNA based gene tagging in trees. His current research interest include controlled gene transfer into predetermined genomic positions and gene tagging for tree functional genomics.

Matthias Fladung

Matthias Fladung, PhD, is Head of the Tree Molecular Genetics and Provenance Research Section of the Institute for Forest Genetics and Forest Tree Breeding in Grosshansdorf, Germany. He is a member of numerous scientific organizations and is the author of more than 30 original publications and 50 peer-reviewed chapters. He received his PhD in botany at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding in Cologne, Germany. His research forcuses on tree transgenesis, genome mapping, and functional genomics of model angiosperm and gymnosperm tree species.
