This volume details state-of-the-art methods for the study of plant embryogenesis in the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana, other models, and non-model species. Chapters guide readers through genetic screens, phenotypic analysis, live imaging, transcriptional profiling, methods on other model and non-model species beyond Arabidopsis thaliana, and introduction to systems that allow to culture or produce zygotic and somatic embryos in vitro. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Plant Embryogenesis: Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
