Interpretive Summary: The papers collected in this book represent presentations at the joint meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Plant Molecular Biology Society and Phytochemical Society of North America. The meeting was held at the USDA Henry A. Wallace Beltsville Agricultural Research Center in Maryland, August 6-10, 2000. Chapters included cover diverse topics ranging from molecular biology and genomics through phytochemistry and disease resistance, through chemistry, biomass conversion, and human health. A common thread is the application of new tools to practical phytochemical problem. This book is of interest to scientists working in areas of plant biochemistry, molecular biology and phytochemistry as a resource of up-to data information concerning new tools and their applications to phytochemistry.

Technical Abstract: Disease and pest resistance, over-production of secondary metabolites for pharmaceutical purposes and many other agricultural problems fall into the realm of phytochemistry and are now studied through techniques of molecular biology and functional genomics. The papers collected in this book represent presentations at the joint meeting of the Mid- Atlantic Plant Molecular Biology Society and Phytochemical Society of North America. The meeting was held at the USDA Henry A. Wallace Beltsville Agricultural Research Center in Maryland, August 6-10, 2000. The papers presented cover diverse topics ranging from molecular biology and genomics through phytochemistry and disease resistance, EST sequencing and pathway engineering through chemistry, biomass conversion, and human health. A common thread is the application of new tools to practical phytochemical problems. This book provides information that is of interest to scientists working in areas of plant biochemistry, molecular biology and phytochemistry as a resource of up-to- date information describing the application of new and emerging tools to phytochemical problems.
