310 pages, 10 colour & 11 b/w illustrations
Sequencing of the maize genome has opened up new opportunities in maize breeding, genetics and genomics research. Genetics, Genomics and Breeding of Maize highlights modern trends in development of hybrids, analysis of genetic diversity, molecular breeding, comparative and functional genomics, epigenomicsand proteomics in maize. The use of maize in biofuels, phytoremediation and pharmaceuticals is also highlighted. Current research trends, future research directions and challenges are discussed by a panel of experts from all over the world.
