1st Edition

Genetics, Genomics, and Breeding of Tomato

    520 Pages 11 Color & 15 B/W Illustrations
    by CRC Press

    This volume covers the advances in the study of tomato diversity and taxonomy, mapping simple and complex traits, classical genetics and breeding, association studies, molecular breeding, positional cloning, structural genomics, comparative genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics. The information in this book will also be useful to researchers working on other Solanaceaous crops as well as those interested in using tomato as a model crop species.
