Descrizione

Computational and high-throughput methods, such as genomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics, known collectively as -omics, have been used to study plant biology for well over a decade now. As these technologies mature, plant and crop scientists have started using these methods to improve crop varieties. Omics in Plant Breeding provides a timely introduction to key omicsbased methods and their application in plant breeding. Omics in Plant Breeding is a practical and accessible overview of specific omics-based methods ranging from metabolomics to phenomics. Covering a single methodology within each chapter, this book provides thorough coverage that ensures a strong understanding of each methodology both in its application to, and improvement of, plant breeding. Accessible to advanced students, researchers, and professionals, Omics in Plant Breeding will be an essential entry point into this innovative and exciting field. A valuable overview of high-throughput, genomics-based technologies and their applications to plant breeding Each chapter explores a single methodology, allowing for detailed and thorough coverage Coverage ranges from well-established methodologies, such as genomics and proteomics, to emerging technologies, including phenomics and physionomics Aluizio Borem is a Professor of Plant Breeding at the University of Vicosa in Brazil. Roberto Fritsche-Neto is a Professor of Genetics and Plant Breeding at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil.
