Now available in paper, Molecular Plant Breeding provides an integrative overview of issues from basic theories to their applications to crop improvement. Chapters include discussions of breeding methodology, quantitative genetics, genomics and bioinformatics and present statistical issues related to gene mapping, marker-assisted selection and genotype by environment interactions in clear and concise language. Providing an integrated profile of molecular breeding in plants, this book will be an essential resource for researchers and students involved in plant biology and breeding, genetics and applied genomics.
