Plant Mitochondria; Preface; Contents; Part I: Dynamics, Genes & Genomes; Chapter 1: Mitochondrial Genome Evolution in the Plant Lineage; Chapter 2: Mitochondrial Dynamics; Chapter 3: Plant Mitochondrial Genomes and Recombination; Part II: Transcription & RNA Processing; Chapter 4: Transcription in Plant Mitochondria; Chapter 5: RNA Processing and RNA Stability in Plant Mitochondria; Chapter 6: RNA Splicing in Plant Mitochondria; Chapter 7: RNA Editing in Higher Plant Mitochondria; Chapter 8: RNA-Binding Proteins Required for Chloroplast RNA Processing; Part III: Translation & Import. Mitochondria are the product of a long evolutionary history. It is now a well established fact that mitochondria did evolve from free living bacteria being the common ancestor of both, eukaryotic mitochondria and I -proteobacteria. Advances in genome sequencing, the establishment of in organello and in vitro assays to name only a few, contributed significantly to advances in plant mitochondrial research. Second generation sequencing and the ability to directly sequence and analyse the whole plant transcriptome certainly will help to develop the research on plant mitochondria to another level i.
