Genomic Designing of Climate-Smart Pulse Crops, 1st ed. 2019

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateur : Kole Chittaranjan

Couverture de l’ouvrage Genomic Designing of Climate-Smart Pulse Crops

This book describes the concepts, strategies and techniques for pulse- crop improvement in the era of climate change, highlighting the latest advances in plant molecular mapping and genome sequencing. 

Genetic mapping of genes and QTLs has broadened the scope of marker-assisted breeding and map-based cloning in almost all major pulse crops. Genetic transformation, particularly using alien genes conferring resistance to herbicide, insects and diseases has facilitated the development of a huge number of genetically modified varieties of the major pulse crops. Since the genome sequencing of rice in 2002, genomes of over 7 pulse crops have been sequenced. This has resulted in the possibility of deciphering the exact nucleotide sequence and chromosomal positions of agroeconomic genes. Most importantly, comparative genomics and genotyping-by-sequencing has opened up a new vista for exploring wild crop relatives for identification of useful donor genes.
