Successful release of new and better crop varieties increasingly requires genomics and molecular biology. This volume presents basic information on plant molecular marker techniques from marker location up to gene cloning. The text includes a description of technical approaches in genome analysis such as comparison of marker systems, positional cloning, and array techniques in 19 crop plants. A special section focuses on converting this knowledge into general and specific breeding strategies, particularly in relation to biotic stress.
This book covers the theory and practice of marker assisted selection for QTL, gene pyramiding and the future of MAS for maize, wheat, and soybean. In addition, it presents approaches in silviculture on the examples of Fagus, Populus, Eucalyptus, Picea and Abies. The volume ends with a comprehensive review of the patents relevant for using molecular markers and marker assisted selection. It addresses plant molecular geneticists as well as plant breeders in the public and private sector.
