Genetics, genomics and breeding of sunflower Genetics, Genomics and Breeding of Crop Plants Series

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Hu Jinguo, Seiler Gerald, Kole C.

The sunflower has fascinated mankind for centuries. The oilseed sunflower contributes approximately ten percent of the world?s plant-derived edible oil and the confection type sunflower holds a considerable share of the directly consumed snacks market. In addition, sunflower is also grown as an ornamental for cut flowers, as well as in home gardens. We are now embarking on the age of genomics which will expedite the process of genetic improvement of crops. There has been an explosion of information on genetic markers, DNA sequences, and genomic resources for most major food crops including sunflower. This volume is intended to bridge traditional research with modern molecular investigations on sunflower.
