Toward the sequence-based breeding in legumes in the post-genome sequencing era

A sequence-based breeding approach which includes use of independent or combination of parental selection, enhancing genetic diversity of breeding programs, forward breeding for early generation selection, and genomic selection using sequencing/genotyping technologies is proposed.



High-Throughput SNP Genotyping to Accelerate Crop Improvement

The range of options available to modern breeders for integrating SNP markers into their programs, whether by outsourcing to service providers or setting up in-house genotyping facilities are discussed, and an example of SNP deployment for rice research and breeding is provided as demonstrated by the Genotyping Services Lab at the International Rice Research Institute.

Array-based high-throughput DNA markers for crop improvement

These microarray-based markers are the markers of choice for the future and are already being used for construction of high-density maps, quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping (including expression QTLs) and genetic diversity analysis with a limited expense in terms of time and money.
