Medicinal Plants: Chemistry, Biology and Omics

Medicinal Plants: Chemistry, Biology and Omics


Medicinal crops: Chemistry, Biology and Omics studies the phytochemistry, chemotaxonomy, molecular biology, and phylogeny of chosen medicinal plant tribes and genera, and their relevance to drug efficacy.

Medicinal crops offer a myriad of pharmaceutically energetic parts, which were standard in conventional chinese language drugs and all over the world for millions of years. expanding curiosity in plant-based medicinal assets has resulted in extra discoveries of many novel compounds, in a variety of angiosperm and gymnosperm species, and investigations on their chemotaxonomy, molecular phylogeny and pharmacology.

Chapters during this booklet discover the interrelationship inside of conventional chinese language medicinal plant teams and among chinese language species and species outdoor of China. Chapters additionally talk about the incongruence among chemotaxonomy and molecular phylogeny, concluding with chapters on platforms biology and “-omics” applied sciences (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics), and the way they're going to play an more and more vital position in destiny pharmaceutical research.
