Plant Lab Protocols

Methodology for Plant Science

Science grows through the nurturing with appropriate methodologies. Choice of experimental methods in research is important to yield satisfactory results.

Subjects like physiology, genetics, pathology, microbiology are now getting expressed in a common language of chemistry, and in common procedures. Quite a number of books are available on general and clinical biochemistry and also on specialized topics such as proteins, nucleic acids, etc. Although there are a number of biochemical procedures followed in plant science research, details are found scattered in various journals and in some science works.
There is obviously a need for a source which in one place provides a various biochemical procedures that are in frequent use in agricultural research.

The outcome of our endeavour is the Plant Lab Protocol covering protocol useful for scientist working in area of plant sciences.

Although we have taken enough care to include operational details, it is necessary for the individual scientist to get conversant with the methods properly.

Biocyclopedia is not respondsible for any kind of inappropriate use of the methodologies given on this website.
