Our ambition in the organization of this book was to explore the current stus of knowledge about nucleic acids in plants. We wanted the reader to be able to learn how this research is being undertaken. Therefore, we asked the contributing authors to include details of approaches and methods. Where feasible, the have provided protocols that can be followed by those who wish to repeat results, extend data, make improvements, or use them in new applications.
