Molecular Markers in Plants surveys an array of techlogies used in the molecular analysis of plants. The role molecular markers play in plant improvement has grown significantly as DNA sequencing and high-throughput techlogies have matured. This timely review of techlogies and techniques will provide readers with a useful resource on the latest molecular techlogies. Molecular Markers in Plants t only reviews past achievements, but also catalogs recent advances and looks forward towards the future application of molecular techlogies in plant improvement. Opening chapters look at the development of molecular techlogies. Subsequent chapters look at a wide range of applications for the use of these advances in fields as diverse as plant breeding, production, biosecurity, and conservation. The final chapters look forward toward future developments in the field. Looking broadly at the field of molecular techlogies, Molecular Markers in Plants will be an essential addition to the library of every researcher, institution, and company working in the field of plant improvement.
