About this book

This text provides an overview of the rapidly developing integration and interdependence of quantitative genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics, and their application to plant breeding. Chapters have been developed from a symposium held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in March 2001, although additional contributions have also been commissioned especially for this volume. The main topics covered include: quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping, genomics, bioinformatics and marker-assisted selection; tissue culture and alien introgression for crop improvement; and advances in genotype by environment interaction/stability analysis. Authors include international authorities from around the world.

Contents

Part I Genomics, quantitative trait loci, and tissue culture: why quantitative geneticists should care about bioinformatics; use of molecular markers in plant breeding - drought tolerance improvements in tropical maize; tissue culture for crop improvement; transferring genes from wild species into rice. Part II Genotype-by-environment interaction and stability analysis: analyzing QTL by environment interaction by factorial regression, with an application to the CIMMYT drought and low-nitrogen stress programme in maize; mechanisms of improved nitrogen use efficiency in cereals; applications of mixed models in plant breeding; defining adaptation strategies and yield stability targets in breeding programmes. (Part contents).
