Medicinal crops: Chemistry, Biology and Omics stories the phytochemistry, chemotaxonomy, molecular biology, and phylogeny of chosen medicinal plant tribes and genera, and their relevance to drug efficacy.
Medicinal crops supply a myriad of pharmaceutically energetic parts, that have been well-known in conventional chinese language medication and around the globe for hundreds of thousands of years. expanding curiosity in plant-based medicinal assets has ended in extra discoveries of many novel compounds, in numerous angiosperm and gymnosperm species, and investigations on their chemotaxonomy, molecular phylogeny and pharmacology.
Chapters during this publication discover the interrelationship inside conventional chinese language medicinal plant teams and among chinese language species and species open air of China. Chapters additionally speak about the incongruence among chemotaxonomy and molecular phylogeny, concluding with chapters on structures biology and -omics applied sciences (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics), and the way they're going to play an more and more vital function in destiny pharmaceutical examine.
• reports top perform and crucial advancements in medicinal plant chemistry and biology
