In recent years, efforts to improve sugarcane have focused on the development of biotechnology tools for this crop. It has become clear that sugarcane lacks tools for the biotechnological route of improvement and that the initial efforts in sequencing ESTs had limited impact on breeding. Until recently, the models used by breeders in statistical genetic approaches have been developed for diploid organisms, which are not ideal for a polyploid genome such as that of sugarcane. Breeding programs… CONTINUE READING
