The use of computational and high-throughput methods, such as genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, or known collectively as “-omics”, to study plant biology for well over a decade now. As these technologies mature, plant and crop scientists have started using these methods for improving crop varieties. Omics in Plant Breeding provides a timely overview of key omics-based methods and their application in plant breeding.
Omics in Plant Breeding is written in a practical and accessible manner, providing the reader with a valuable overview of specific omics-based methods ranging from metabolomics to phenomics. Covering a single methodology within each chapter this book will be able to provide thorough coverage that will ensure a strong understanding of each methodology as it is applied to plant breeding and improvement.
