Biotechnology and Plant Breeding: Applications and by Aluízio Borém,Roberto Fritsche-Neto

By Aluízio Borém,Roberto Fritsche-Neto

Biotechnology and Plant Breeding comprises serious discussions of the latest and most vital functions of biotechnology in plant breeding, protecting key themes corresponding to biometry utilized to molecular research of genetic variety, genetically changed crops, and extra. This paintings is going past recombinant DNA know-how to collect key info and references on new biotech instruments for cultivar improvement, similar to double-haploids, molecular markers, and genome-wide choice, between others.

It is more and more not easy for plant breeders and agricultural structures to provide adequate meals, feed, fiber and biofuel for the worldwide inhabitants. As plant breeding evolves and turns into more and more subtle, a astounding quantity of genetic facts is now generated. Biotechnology and Plant Breeding is helping researchers and scholars get to grips with how the immense quantities of genetic facts are generated, kept, analyzed and utilized.

This functional source integrates information regarding plant breeding into the context of contemporary technological know-how, and assists with education for plant breeders together with these scientists who've an excellent figuring out of molecular biology/biotechnology and want to benefit the paintings and perform of plant breeding. Plant biologists, breeding technicians, agronomists, seed technologists, scholars, and any researcher drawn to biotechnologies utilized to plant breeding will locate this paintings a necessary software and reference for the field.

  • Presents in-depth yet easy-to-understand insurance of subject matters, so plant breeders can without difficulty understand them and follow them to their breeding courses
  • Includes chapters that handle the already built and optimized biotechnologies for cultivar improvement, with real-world program for users
  • Features contributions by means of authors with numerous years of expertise of their parts of craftsmanship
