Plant genotyping, or DNA fingerprinting of plants, is a technology that has matured and is poised for widespread practical application in the fields of breeding, commerce and research. This book examines the technologies available and their application in the analysis of: Wild plant populations, Germplasm collections and Plant breeding. Contributors include leading research workers in this field from North America, Europe and Australasia.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An international group of academic and industrial researchers examines the technologies available and their application in the analysis of wild plant populations, germplasm collections, and plant breeding. The volume's 21 contributions are arranged in five sections: molecular markers available for use in plant genotyping; genotyping plant genetic resource collections; genotyping cultivated and wild germplasm; development of molecular markers for use in plant genotyping; and technical developments and issues in plant genotyping. Of likely interest to researchers in plant genetics, molecular biology, breeding, and biotechnology."--SciTech Book News
