Advances in Haploid Production in Higher Plants by M. Wędzony, B. P. Forster, I. Żur (auth.), Dr. Alisher

By M. Wędzony, B. P. Forster, I. Żur (auth.), Dr. Alisher Touraev, Dr. Brain P. Forster, Dr. S. Mohan Jain (eds.)

The discovery of haploid Datura vegetation in 1964 initiated nice pleasure in plant breeding and genetics groups. fresh years have witnessed a resurgence of actions specially in constructing protocols, picking out genes and mechanisms and massive scale advertisement take up.

The id of controlling genes has pushed sensible genomic stories which now dovetail with reports in gene expression, metabolism and alterations in mobilephone ultra-structure. around the world soak up by way of plant breeders has been no much less extraordinary, and worthy haploid applied sciences are more and more patent safe. the serious task in haploid learn has additionally ended in unforeseen findings with novel applications.

The center of this e-book relies at the overseas symposium on "Haploidy in greater vegetation III", (Vienna 2006), which attracted most sensible foreign specialists within the box. different invited contributions were incorporated to supply a rounded view of actions. The publication covers issues in: historic Overviews; uncomplicated Biology; Genetics; Biotechnology; Breeding and Novel functions. It consequently will attract undergraduate students,researchers and small and massive scale advertisement biotechnology companies.
