Application of molecular cytogenetics in fundamental and applied research of potato Chapter 9.

Research output

Abstract

About the Book Potato ranks among the world’s most significant human food crops. Breeding, genetics, and genomics have contributed significantly to the improvement of this important crop. In this volume, world leaders in potato research review historical and contemporary potato research resulting in advances in nutritional quality, yield, disease and insect resistance, processability, plant growth and development, and other aspects. Also reviewed is research yielding significant molecular resources facilitating breeding, linkage and gene mapping, cytology, functional and structural genomics, and proteomics and metabolomics. Finally, future research developments that are likely to significantly advance efforts to understand and improve the potato are explored. Contents: Introduction to Potato: J.M. Bradeen and K.G. Haynes • A Brief History of the Potato • Potato Morphology • Potato Taxonomy, Related Species, and Crossability • Potato Production Statistics • Potato Nutritional Content • Future Prospects for Po
