About this book

In this volume, world leaders in potato research review historical and contemporary potato research resulting in advances in nutritional quality, yield, disease and insect resistance, processability, plant growth and development, and other aspects. Also reviewed is research yielding significant molecular resources facilitating breeding, linkage and gene mapping, cytology, functional and structural genomics, and proteomics and metabolomics. Finally, future research developments that are likely to significantly advance efforts to understand and improve the potato are explored.
