Beschreibung:
"Genomics research has great potential to revolutionize the discipline of plant breeding. This two-volume set provides a critical assessment of genomics tools and approaches for crop breeding. Volume 1, entitled "Genomics Approaches and Platforms", illustrates state-of-the-art genomics approaches and platforms presently available for crop improvement. Volume 2, entitled "Genomics Applications in Crops", compiles crop-specific studies that summarize both the achievements and limitations of genomics research for crop improvement. We hope that these two volumes, while providing new ideas and opportunities to those working in crop breeding, will help graduate students and teachers to develop a better understanding of the applications of crop genomics to plant research and breeding TOC:1.Genomics-assisted crop improvement: an overview.- 2. Genic molecular markers in plants:development and applications.- 3. Molecular breeding: maximizing the exploitation of genetic diversity.- 4. Modeling QTL effects and marker-assisted selection in plant breeding.- 5. Applications of linkage disequilibrium and association mapping in crop plants.- 6. Exploitation of natural biodiversity through genomics.- 7. Genomeless genomics in crop improvement.- 8. Comparative genomics of cereals.- 9. Cloning QTLs in plants.- 10. Use of serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) for transcript profiling in plants.- 11. Genetical genomics: successes and prospects in plants.- 12. Analysis of salt stress-related transcriptome fingerprints from diverse plant species.- 13. Auxin and cytokinin signaling component genes and their potential for crop improvement.- 14. Statistical advances in functional genomics.- 15. TILLING and EcoTILLING for crop improvement.- 16. Characterization of epigenetic biomarkers using new molecular approaches."

Genomics research has great potential to revolutionize the discipline of plant breeding in order to realize the future needs of an ever growing human population. Several high-throughput approaches, genomics platforms and strategies are currently available for applying genomics to crop breeding. However, high costs invested in/associated with genomics research currently limit the implementation of genomics-assisted crop improvement, especially for inbreeding and/or minor crops. The volume ¿Genomics-Assisted Crop Improvement¿ provides a critical assessment of genomics tools and approaches for crop breeding. Volume 1 entitled ¿Genomics Approaches and Platforms¿ presents the status and availability of genomic resources and genomics platforms and also devises the strategies and approaches for effectively exploiting genomics research for crop improvement. Volume 2 entitled ¿Genomics Applications in Crops¿ presents a number of case studies of several important crop and plant species that summarize both the achievements and limitations of genomics research for crop improvement. We hope that this effort will help those working in crop genomics as well as conventional plant breeding to focus their research plans for crop improvement programmes. The book will also help graduate students and teachers to develop a better understanding of this important aspect of modern plant science research.
