Genetic Resources, Chromosome Engineering, and Crop by Ram J. Singh, Prem P. Jauhar

By Ram J. Singh, Prem P. Jauhar

This can be the second one publication in a brand new sequence that explores chromosome engineering for crop development. concentrating on cereal plants, the ebook covers financial value, around the globe creation and distribution, usage, and the starting place of the crop and its progenitor. With chapters written via the world over well known scientists, the publication discusses germplasm assortment, upkeep, assessment, dissemination; taxonomy; cytogenetics, gene swimming pools, germplasm enhancement; and biotechnical tools. Filling a niche within the literature, Genetic assets, Chromosome Engineering, and Crop development: Cereals serves because the usual reference for laying out the easiest paths for bettering cereal crop yield. learn more... summary: this can be the second one publication in a brand new sequence that explores chromosome engineering for crop development. concentrating on cereal plants, the publication covers financial value, all over the world creation and distribution, usage, and the foundation of the crop and its progenitor.

1988; Pflüger et al. 2001; Xu et al. 2004). The diploid donors of the A and B genomes to durum wheat also hold considerable potential as sources of agronomically desirable genes. Wild perennial relatives are also important sources of genes that could be used for genetic improvement of wheat via wide hybridization. Hybridization with perennial grasses in the genera Agropyron, Thinopyrum, and Lophopyrum has contributed to the genetic enrichment of bread wheat (Feldman and Sears 1981; McIntosh 1991; Jiang et al.

In contrast to the relatively little diploidization undergone by storage protein genes in the wild tetraploid wheat T. dicoccoides, a massive and nonrandom diploidization of these genes evidently occurred in the primitive cultivated type T. turgidum var. dicoccum and proceeded even further in modern cultivars of var. durum (Galili and Feldman 1983; Feldman et al. 1986). Based on the available evidence, including recent results on synthetic allotetraploid (Kashkush et al. 2002) and allohexaploid (He et al.
