The Molecular Biology and Biochemistry of Fruit Ripening

by Graham B. Seymour, et al
 
Recent scientific advances and technological breakthroughs have revolutionized our understanding of the molecular and biochemical processes that control fruit ripening.

The Molecular Biology and Biochemistry of Fruit Ripening provides a succinct yet detailed overview of the physiochemical and molecular changes in fruit that impact its quality, color, flavor, and texture.




The Molecular Biology and Biochemistry of Fruit Ripening takes a mechanistic approach that compares and contrasts ripening processes between various fruit species. 

An understanding of the basic mechanisms that control ripening processes can then be applied toward improvement in yield, nutritional content, and distribution. Chapters explore diverse biological aspects of the ripening process reinforced by vibrant full-color illustrations, including the evolution of fruits, the role of the plant hormone ethylene, and the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites and the structure of fruit cell walls.

Providing an essential update for this fast moving area of research, The Molecular Biology and Biochemistry of Fruit Ripening will be a valuable resource for plant and crop science researchers, crop biotechnologists, industry personnel, horticulturists, and food scientists.
