Epigenetics and Biological Processes

Epigenetics and Biological Processes deals with epigenetic control of various plant processes such as chromatin modification, biomacromolecule interactions, cell cycle, DNA replication, DNA recombination, DNA damage response, transcription, RNA processing and translation initiation, host restriction and modification, heterochromatin, euchromatin, centromere functions, telomeric maintenance, transposon activation, transposon silencing, transposon reactivation, photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration, polyploidisation, heterosis, homeostasis, cytoplasmic male sterility, self-incompatibility, circadian clocks, epigenetic imprinting, dosage compensation, somaclonal variation, plant stress response, plant-microbe interactions, disease responsive genes, and sustainable green revolution through epigenetics. Understanding epigenetics of these plant processes is essential for using science of epigenetics as a tool for crop improvement.

This book is primarily designed as a textbook for senior/upper undergraduate (B.Sc. Agri.; B.Sc. Biotechnology and B.Tech. (Biotechnology) and graduate level (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) students studying epigenetics in conventional, agricultural and medical universities. Teachers and researchers in any discipline of life sciences, agricultural sciences, medicine, and biotechnology.
