<p><b>Fully covers the biology, biochemistry, genetics, and genomics of Medicago truncatula</b></p> <p>Model plant species are valuable not only because they lead to discoveries in basic biology, but also because they provide resources that facilitate translational biology to improve crops of economic importance. Plant scientists are drawn to models because of their ease of manipulation, simple genome organization, rapid life cycles, and the availability of multiple genetic and genomic tools. This reference provides comprehensive coverage of the Model Legume Medicago truncatula. It features review chapters as well as research chapters describing experiments carried out by the authors with clear materials and methods. Most of the chapters utilize advanced molecular techniques and biochemical analyses to approach a variety of aspects of the Model.</p> <p><i>The Model Legume Medicago truncatula</i> starts with an examination of <i>M. truncatula</i> plant development; biosynthesis of natural products; stress and <i>M. truncatula</i>; and the <i>M. truncatula</i>-<i>Sinorhizobium meliloti</i> symbiosis. Symbiosis of <i>Medicago truncatula</i> with arbuscular mycorrhiza comes next, followed by chapters on the common symbiotic signaling pathway (CSSP or SYM) and infection events in the Rhizobium-legume symbiosis. Other sections look at hormones and the rhizobial and mycorrhizal symbioses; autoregulation of nodule numbers (AON) in <i>M. truncatula</i>; <i>Medicago truncatula</i> databases and computer programs; and more.</p> <ul> <li>Contains reviews, original research chapters, and methods</li> <li>Covers most aspects of the <i>M. truncatula</i> Model System, including basic biology, biochemistry, genetics, and genomics of this system</li> <li>Offers molecular techniques and advanced biochemical analyses for approaching a variety of aspects of the Model Legume <i>Medicago truncatula</i></li> <li>Includes introductions by the editor to each section, presenting the summary of selected chapters in the section</li> <li>Features an extensive index, to facilitate the search for key terms</li> </ul> <p><i>The Model Legume Medicago truncatula</i> is an excellent book for researchers and upper level graduate students in microbial ecology, environmental microbiology, plant genetics and biochemistry. It will also benefit legume biologists, plant molecular biologists, agrobiologists, plant breeders, bioinformaticians, and evolutionary biologists.</p>
