  • Molecular Marker Systems in Plant Breeding and Crop Improvement

    Molecular Marker Systems in Plant Breeding and Crop Improvement

    Successful release of new and better crop varieties increasingly requires genomics and molecular biology. This volume presents basic information on plant molecular marker techniques from marker location up to gene cloning. The text includes a description of technical approaches in genome analysis such as comparison of marker systems, positional cloning, and array techniques in 19 crop plants. A special section focuses on converting this ...

  • Transgenic Crops V

    Transgenic Crops V

    Genetic engineering is a powerful tool for crop improvement. The status of crop biotechnology before 2001 was reviewed in Transgenic Crops I-III, but recent advances in plant cell and molecular biology have prompted the need for new volumes.Following Transgenic Crops IV (2007) dealing with cereals, vegetables, root crops, herbs and spices, this volume, Transgenic Crops V, is devoted to fruit, trees and beverage crops. Fruit crops targeted ...

  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    The rapid progress made on somatic embryogenesis and its prospects for potential applications in improving woody plants prompted us to edit this book initially in three volumes, and now to add two more volumes. The editors were all convinced that such a treatise was needed and would be extremely useful to researchers and students. This Volume 5 has been divided into four sections and contains 18 chapters. Section A contains eleven chapters ...
