Key plant hormone and its roles in plant biology is focus of new book

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. (Jan. 5, 2011) Auxin is a critical hormone in plants, playing a key role in nearly all aspects of plant development and physiology. A new book, Auxin Signaling: From Synthesis to Systems Biology, provides a broad overview of auxin and its many roles in plant biology.

"[A]uxin has claimed center stage in many areas of plant research," write the editors, Mark Estelle, Dolf Weijers, Karin Ljung, and Ottoline Leyser, in the preface. "We hope this book provides an informative and stimulating introduction to the complex and surprising world of auxin biology."

Auxin Signaling includes 16 chapters, each written by one or more experts. Topics include auxin biosynthesis and transport, cellular responses to auxin, and mechanisms of auxin-dependent processes such as light response, root patterning, and organogenesis. A historical introduction to the field is also provided.

Auxin Signaling is geared towards botanists and biochemists working in the field. It was recently released by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.
