Genome Mapping and Molecular Breeding in Plants

Series Editors:



"Genome Mapping and Molecular Breeding in Plants" provides a timely overview of the current status of genome analysis, with an emphasis on economically and academically relevant species. The work focuses on genetic and physical genome maps; on mapping, cloning, and monitoring of economic genes through molecular breeding; and on the most recent advances in genomics.

The series comprises seven volumes: Cereals and Millets; Oilseeds; Pulses, Sugar and Tuber Crops; Fruits and Nuts; Vegetables; Technical Crops; and Forest Trees. With 82 chapters contributed by some 300 internationally known scientists from more than 30 countries, this series will serve as a comprehensive basis for further studies and the delineation of plant genomes and their improvement.

"The history of a billion years is recorded in these genomes; most of the text for the next billion years is contained in these genomes. Read and enjoy!" (Phillip A. Sharp)
