About this book

This text provides an overview of the emerging field of the study of complex plant genomes and the laboratory techniques that will enhance genetic improvement of cotton. It also addresses important issues and opportunities that face the cotton industry. Topics include the approaches utilized in breeding and development of cotton cultivars in Australia; the expression and regulation of lipid transfer protein genes in cotton fibre; and RFLP diversity in cotton.


Approaches utilized in breeding and development of cotton cultivars in Australia, G.A. Constable et al; improving the insect and disease resistance utilizing the multi-adversity resistance (MAR) system, K.M. El-Zik and P.M. Thaxton; new approaches for analyzing quantitative traits and their applications in cotton, Jun Zhu; genes from exotic germplasm and their use in cultivar improvement in "Gossypium hirsutum L." and "G. barbadense L.", Jack C. MacCarty, Jr. and Richard G. Percy; RFLP diversity in cotton, C.L. Brubaker and J.F. Wendel; cotton genomec research in the United States, Z.H. Yu and R.J. Kohel; molecular markers and quantitative traits in "Gossypium hirsutum L." J.N. Jenkins et al; commercialization of transgenic cotton expressing insecticidal crystal protein, John H. Benedict and David W. Altman; resistance of transgenic BT cotton to "Helicoverpa amigera" Hubner (Lepidoptera - Noctuidae) and its effects on other insects in China, J.Y. Xia et al; antioxidant systems and environmental stress tolerance in cotton, Paxton Payton et al; improved methods for screening cotton cDNAs using flurochrome labelled AFLP and SSR-specific primers, S. Saha et al; expression and regulation of lipid transfer protein genes in cotton fibre, Din-Pow Ma et al; tissue culture and genetic transformation of cotton, K.
