Genomics-Assisted Crop Improvement: Vol 2: Genomics Applications in Crops / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer Netherlands
This superb volume provides a critical assessment of genomics tools and approaches for crop breeding. Volume 1 presents the status and availability of genomic resources and platforms, and also devises strategies and approaches for effectively exploiting genomics research. Volume 2 goes into detail on a number of case studies of several important crop and plant species that summarize both the achievements and limitations of genomics research for crop improvement.
