Carbohydrates in grain legume seeds. Improving nutritional quality and agronomic characteristics.

Book cover for Carbohydrates in grain legume seeds. Improving nutritional quality and agronomic characteristics.


This book is the result of a combined effort from scientists covering many disciplines interacting within a European Union-funded Copernicus project entitled 'Carbohydrate Biotechnology Network for Grain Legumes' (CABINET). The CABINET project linked 30 participants from 14 countries across Europe, including states of the former Soviet Union. The 8 chapters provide information on carbohydrate chemistry, nutrition, processing, seed physiology and biochemistry, biotechnology, breeding and agronomy, and strategies for manipulating grain legume carbohydrates.
