Abstract

Gene space: the final frontier in plant functional genomics. These are the voyages of TILLING, the reverse-genetics strategy that sought to boldly go where no-one had gone before by combining high-density chemical mutagenesis with high-throughput mutation discovery. Its 18-year mission has been to explore new technologies such as next generation sequencing and to seek out new strategies like in silico databases of catalogued EMS-induced mutations from entire mutant plant populations. This chapter is a clip show highlighting key milestones in the development of TILLING. Use of different technologies for the discovery of induced mutations, establishment of TILLING in different plant species, what has been learned about the effect of chemical mutagens on the plant genome, development of exome capture sequencing in wheat, and a look to the future of reverse-genetics with targeted genome editing are discussed.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 March 2018.
All research outputs
#10,227,415
of 12,810,535 outputs
Outputs from Advances in biochemical engineering biotechnology
#101
of 186 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#201,919
of 270,081 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in biochemical engineering biotechnology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,810,535 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 186 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,081 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
