’ s Choice Series on the Next Generation of Biotech Crops Molecular Plant Breeding as the Foundation for 21 st Century Crop Improvement 1
The fundamental discoveries of Darwin and Mendel established the scientific basis for plant breeding and genetics at the turn of the 20th century. Similarly, the recent integration of advances inExpand
The Genetic Makeup of a Global Barnyard Millet Germplasm Collection
TLDR
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. Expand
TRANSLATIONAL GENOMICS FROM MODEL SPECIES TO CROPS
Plant genetic resources collection and utilization had made a huge impact in balancing the genetic diversity of the existing crop plant species and their application in genome based studies had alsoExpand
Potential of Genetic and Genomic Resources for Genetic Improvement of Food Crops
TLDR
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. Expand
Agriculture in the developing world: Connecting innovations in plant research to downstream applications.

  • Engineering, Environmental Science
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 2005
TLDR
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. Expand
Bioinformatics Tools for Crop Research and Breeding
TLDR
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. Expand
Identification, validation and high-throughput genotyping of transcribed gene SNPs in cassava
TLDR
The resources presented allow for improved genetic dissection of economically important traits and the application of modern genomics-based approaches to cassava breeding and conservation. Expand
The GCP molecular marker toolkit, an instrument for use in breeding food security crops
TLDR
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. Expand
Genomics of crop plant genetic resources
TLDR
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. Expand

Plant comparative genetics after 10 years.
TLDR
Comparative genetics is the key that will unlock the secrets of crop plants with genomes larger than that of humans, and it is providing a solid base for their improvement. Expand
The unified grass genome: synergy in synteny.
TLDR
The grasses, members of the family Gramineae or Poaceae, are represented by over 10,000 species and are also highly diverse in morphology and growth habit. Expand
Biotechnology in the developing world: a case for increased investments in orphan crops
TLDR
The opportunities for using several forms of modern biotechnology to improve orphan crops in developing countries are examined and examples of potential genetic and genomics research that are likely to benefit poor regions are provided. Expand
Rice bioinformatics. analysis of rice sequence data and leveraging the data to other plant species.
TLDR
All rice bacterial artificial chromosome/P1 artificial chromosome sequences are aligned with The Institute of Genomic Research Gene Indices that are a set of nonredundant transcripts that are generated from nine public plant expressed sequence tag projects (rice, wheat, sorghum, maize, barley, Arabidopsis, tomato, potato, and barrel medic).

Candidate gene analysis of quantitative disease resistance in wheat
TLDR
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. Expand
Candidate defense genes from rice, barley, and maize and their association with qualitative and quantitative resistance in rice.
TLDR
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. Expand
Arabidopsis-rice: will colinearity allow gene prediction across the eudicot-monocot divide?
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
Results of a study carried out in Mexico at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) to compare the cost-effectiveness of conventional and marker-assisted maize breeding produced four important insights. Expand
