This book describes the structure, gene content, expression, evolution and genetics of chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes. Explanations of the use of chloroplast and mitochondial genomes in phylogenetic studies as well as descriptions of such phenomena as intron splicing, mobile genetic elements and RNA editing are included, to show how the study of these genomes is now contributing broadly to important biological problems.
