Harvesting the Promising Fruits of Genomics: Applying Genome Sequencing Technologies to Crop Breeding

  title={Harvesting the Promising Fruits of Genomics: Applying Genome Sequencing Technologies to Crop Breeding},
  author={Rajeev K. Varshney and Ryohei Terauchi and Susan R McCouch},
  booktitle={PLoS biology},
Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies are being used to generate whole genome sequences for a wide range of crop species. When combined with precise phenotyping methods, these technologies provide a powerful and rapid tool for identifying the genetic basis of agriculturally important traits and for predicting the breeding value of individuals in a plant breeding population. Here we summarize current trends and future prospects for utilizing NGS-based technologies to develop crops with… CONTINUE READING
