By Aluízio Borém,Roberto Fritsche-Neto

Biotechnology and Plant Breeding contains serious discussions of the most recent and most crucial purposes of biotechnology in plant breeding, masking key subject matters comparable 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 details and references on new biotech instruments for cultivar improvement, equivalent to double-haploids, molecular markers, and genome-wide choice, between others.

It is more and more difficult for plant breeders and agricultural platforms to provide sufficient foodstuff, 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 colossal quantities of genetic info are generated, kept, analyzed and utilized.

This useful 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 outstanding figuring out of molecular biology/biotechnology and want to profit the artwork and perform of plant breeding. Plant biologists, breeding technicians, agronomists, seed technologists, scholars, and any researcher attracted to biotechnologies utilized to plant breeding will locate this paintings a necessary instrument and reference for the field.

  • Presents in-depth yet easy-to-understand insurance of subject matters, so plant breeders can quite simply understand them and practice them to their breeding courses
  • Includes chapters that deal with the already built and optimized biotechnologies for cultivar improvement, with real-world software for users
