Molecular Plant Breeding (Cabi) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Recent advances in plant genomics and molecular biology have revolutionized our understanding of plant genetics, providing new opportunities for more efficient and controllable plant breeding. Successful techniques require a solid understanding of the underlying molecular biology as well as experience in applied plant breeding.

Bridging the gap between developments in biotechnology and its applications in plant improvement, Molecular Plant Breeding provides an integrative overview of issues from basic theories to their applications to crop improvement including molecular marker technology, gene mapping, genetic transformation, quantitative genetics, and breeding methodology.

About the Author

Yunbi Xu received his PhD. in genetics and plant breeding (1993, Zhejiang Agricultural University) and B.S. in agronomy (1982, Huazhong Agricultural College). He is now a molecular maize breeder and head of Applied Biotechnology Center, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT). Before that, he worked as an assistant/associate professor and deputy director of Department of Agronomy, Zhejiang Agricultural University; postdoctoral and research associate at Cornell University; and plant molecular biologist and molecular rice breeder at RiceTec, Inc., Texas. Dr. Xu has published 30 articles in peer-reviewed international journals, 11 book chapters/proceedings, and 32 poster presentations. He delivered 21 talks at international conferences/symposia/workshops. He serves as an editor for three international journals (Theoretical and Applied Genetics, Molecular Breeding, and International Journal of Plant Genomics). During past 15 years, Dr. Xu has focused his research in genetic mapping, marker development, marker-assisted selection, and development of molecular breeding platforms.
