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