Editors: Katya Carbone (Agricultural Research Council – Research Unit for Enology in Central Italy (CRA-ENC), Velletri, Rome, Italy)
Book Description:
This new book is a collection of research and review articles from authors involved in diverse aspects of cultivar research. This volume discusses the agronomic, biochemical and nutritional aspects of a wide range of plant cultivars, including aspects related to the use of genetic tools for the production of vaccines as well as new molecular techniques available for product traceability. Also reviewed is the comprehensive treatment of the physiological effects of foods and food components capable of promoting good health and preventing or alleviating disease. Moreover, this volume will be of great help to undergraduate and graduate level students in Genetics, Agriculture, Phytochemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, Plant Physiology and Crop Development, and an excellent reference material for plant researchers.
