This book covers the recent progress on genome research in tropical crop plants, including the development of molecular markers, genomic and cDNA libraries, expressed sequence tags (ESTs), genetic and physical maps, gene expression profiles and whole genome sequences.
The first section of this book provides background information for tropical agriculture of its crops. The second section consists of concise summaries of genomic research for the economically most important tropical crop plant species.
From the reviews: "This book forms a part of a series of books on the study of plant genomics. It has been structured to provide and discuss recent genetic and genomic studies on the principal cultivated plants and existing genetic models. With this, it aims to improve the identification, characterization and clonage of agriculturally important genes. ! gives an opportunity to both investigators and students to update methods, strategies, applications and perspectives on tropical plant genomics of agricultural interest."
