Abstract

Circadian clocks are endogenous and temperature-compensating timekeepers that provide temporal organization of biological processes in living organisms. Circadian rhythms allow living organisms to adapt to the daily light cycles associated with Earth's rotation and to anticipate and prepare for precise and regular environmental changes. This book discusses the fundamental advances of how the circadian clock regulates critical biological functions as well as the cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythm in living organisms. It also provides new insights into and sheds new light on the current research trends and future research directions related to circadian rhythm. This book provokes interest in many readers, researchers and scientists, who can find this information useful for the advancement of their research works towards a better understanding of circadian rhythm regulatory mechanisms.

Abstract

The genus Brassica L. of the family Brassicaceae has a vital role in agriculture and human health. The genus comprises several species, including major oilseed and vegetable crops with promising agronomic traits. Brassica secondary products have antibacterial, antioxidant and antiviral effects. Characterization of Brassica is important for providing information on domestication, propagation and breeding programs, as well as conservation of plant genetic resources. This book highlights the current knowledge of the genus Brassica L. in order to understand its biology, diversity, conservation and breeding, as well as to develop disease-resistant and more productive crops. This book will be of interest to many readers, researchers and scientists, who will find this information useful for the advancement of their research towards a better understanding of Brassica breeding programs.
