Genetics, Genomics and Breeding of Berries. 2011. 5 col. pls. 200 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
There has been considerable interest in berries, recently, for their health, culinary, and biological properties has driven new initiatives in berry breeding and production. At the same time breakthroughs in molecular technologies allow genomics-enabled approaches to augment research efforts. This volume documents the basic botany and culture of four major berry crops and then follows the scientific milestones that have ushered these systems into the modern genomics era. Leading researchers in each crop system detail the recent findings in genetics, genomics and breeding that seek to improve sustainable cultivation, fruit quality, and availability.
