Download Genomics-Assisted Crop Improvement: Genomics Approaches and by Rajeev K. Varshney, Roberto Tuberosa PDF

By Rajeev K. Varshney, Roberto Tuberosa

Genomics learn has nice strength to revolutionize the self-discipline of plant breeding. This two-volume set offers a severe overview of genomics instruments and ways for crop breeding. quantity 1, entitled Genomics methods and structures, illustrates cutting-edge genomics techniques and systems shortly on hand for crop development. quantity 2, entitled Genomics functions in plants, compiles crop-specific stories that summarize either the achievements and obstacles of genomics study for crop development. we are hoping that those volumes, whereas supplying new rules and possibilities to these operating in crop breeding, may also help graduate scholars and lecturers to improve a greater knowing of the purposes of crop genomics to plant examine and breeding.

Such molecular maps, not only provide gene based molecular markers associated with the trait of interest after the QTL analysis, but also can be compared with those of the other related plant species in an efficient manner.

AFLPs). These DNA markers can be generated in large numbers and can prove to be very useful for a variety of purposes relevant to crop improvement. For instance, these markers have been utilized extensively for the preparation of saturated molecular maps (genetical and physical). g. Koebner 2004, Korzun 2002). Other uses of molecular markers include gene introgression through backcrossing, germplasm characterization, genetic diagnostics, characterization of transformants, study of genome organization and phylogenetic analysis (see Jain et al.
