The Genetic Makeup of a Global Barnyard Millet Germplasm Collection

The genetic characterization of this core collection of 89 barnyard millet accessions using whole‐genome genotyping‐by‐sequencing serves as a case study of how modern genomics can rapidly characterize crops, including ones with little to no prior genetic data.

TRANSLATIONAL GENOMICS FROM MODEL SPECIES TO CROPS

The future of crop improvement will be centred on comparisons of individual crop plant genomes, and some of the best opportunities may lie in using combinations of new genetic mapping strategies and evolutionary analyses to direct and optimize the discovery and use of genetic variation.

Potential of Genetic and Genomic Resources for Genetic Improvement of Food Crops

The real and potential application of the current advances in genomic technologies can be used for efficient utilization of PGR for crop improvement to secure food security.

The revolution in plant genomics has opened up new perspectives and opportunities for plant breeders who can now apply molecular markers to assess and enhance diversity in their germplasm collections, to introgress valuable traits from new sources, and to identify genes that control key traits.

Bioinformatics Tools for Crop Research and Breeding

This chapter focuses on the bioinformatics resources that are available for crop science research and breeding, and indicates gaps that need to be bridged that will allow scientists to access, transfer and integrate data with ease.

The GCP molecular marker toolkit, an instrument for use in breeding food security crops

An intensive literature review and consulted with more than 150 crop experts on the use of molecular markers in the breeding program of 19 food security crops found only 12 food crops had molecular markers suitable for improvement, but 214 molecular markers were found to be effectively used in association with 74 different traits.

The results of this study indicate that many minor resistance QTLs may be from the action of DR genes, and that the candidate-gene approach can be an efficient method of QTL identification.

Candidate defense genes from rice, barley, and maize and their association with qualitative and quantitative resistance in rice.

Several candidate RGA and DR gene markers were associated with QTL from the pathogens and pest and the frame map provides reference points to select candidate genes for cosegregation analysis using other mapping populations, isogenic lines, and mutants.

Arabidopsis-rice: will colinearity allow gene prediction across the eudicot-monocot divide?

A detailed study of the colinearity remaining between two small regions ofArabidopsis chromosome 1 and rice suggests that at least in these regions of the Arabidopsis genome, conservation of gene orders with rice has been eroded to the point that it is no longer identifiable using comparative mapping.

Inheritance of partial resistance against Colletotrichum lindemuthianum in Phaseolus vulgaris and co-localization of quantitative trait loci with genes involved in specific resistance.

A reliable test was developed to score partial resistance in aerial organs of the plant (stem, leaf, petiole) under controlled growth chamber conditions and BAT93 was more resistant than JaloEEP558 regardless of the organ or strain tested.
