About this book

Bridges genome sequence studies and practical plant breeding. Presents both an overview and the latest results of this rapidly expanding field.


Introduction.- Genome analysis of a flowering plant, Arabidopsis thaliana.- The sequence of the Arabidopsis genome as a tool for comparative structural genomics in Brassicaceae.- Application of molecular markers in Brassica coenospecies: comparative mapping and tagging.- The molecular genetic basis of flowering time variation in Brassica species.- Quantitative trait loci for clubroot resistance in Brassica oleracea.- Structural differences of S locus between Brassica oleracea and Brassica rapa.- Brassica and legume chromosomes.- Sequence analysis of the Lotus japonicus genome.- Introduction of an early flowering accession ?Miyakojima? MG-20 to molecular genetics in Lotus japonicus.- Genetic linkage map of the model legume Lotus japonicus.- Construction of a high quality genome library of Lotus japonicus: application of high efficient genome scanning for construction of high density map and conduct of saturation mapping of nodulation genes.- Genome analysis of Mesorhizobium loti: a symbiotic partner to Lotus japonicus.- Molecular linkage map of the model legume Medicago truncatula Gaertn.- Genetic mapping of seed and nodule protein markers in diploid alfalfa (Medicago sativa).- Mapping the chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genome: Localization of fungal resistance genes in interspecific crosses.
