Overview

Marker-Assisted Selection: Current Status and Future Perspectives in Crops, Livestock, Forestry and Fish by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Beate D. Scherf

In the light of continuing research and technology development, the process of producing improved varieties, clones, breeds and stains of agriculturally important species is continuously becoming more accurate, reliable and efficient. Today, molecular marker-assisted selection (MAS) is the core technology involved for increasing the rate of genetic gain in crops, livestock, forestry and farmed fish. This book, through a multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach, provides a comprehensive description and assessment of the use of MAS, including the related policy, organizational and resource considerations. It will provide valuable guidance to scientists and breeders in both private and public sectors, as well as to government and institutional policy- and decision-makers.
