Book Description

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.
