Applications of Genetic and Genomic Research in Cereals covers new techniques for practical breeding, also discussing genetic and genomic approaches for improving special traits. Additional sections cover drought tolerance, biotic stress, biomass production, the impact of modern techniques on practical breeding, hybrid breeding, genetic diversity, and genomic selection. Written by an international team of top academics and edited by an expert in the field, this book will be of value to academics working in the agricultural sciences and essential reading for professionals working in plant breeding.
- Provides in-depth and comprehensive coverage of a rapidly developing field
- Presents techniques used in genetic and genomics research, with coverage of genotyping, gene cloning, genome editing and engineering and phenotyping in various cereals
- Includes the latest genetic and genomic approaches for improving special traits - drought tolerance, biotic stress and biomass production
- Covers breeding practices, with chapters on the genetic diversity of wheat, hybrid breeding and the potential of rye and barley crops
Academics and post-graduate students in agricultural sciences, especially those specialising in crop and cereal sciences. Professional plant breeders. International organizations (e.g. CIMMYT, IRRI, FAO, AACCI etc.)
