Advanced breeding techniques for grain legumes in the genomics era

Code: 9781838793920
Juan M. Osorno and Phillip E. McClean, North Dakota State University, USA; and Timothy Close, University of California (Riverside), USA

Chapter synopsis: The challenge of grain legume production is to continue increasing productivity while reducing the significant seed yield gap between developed and developing countries/regions. Advanced breeding techniques play an important role in the era of genomics. This chapter describes the main grain legume breeding programmes, including breeding targets such as stressors and phenotypes. The chapter examines grain legume reference-genome sequences, legume common lineages and synteny and describes the use of whole-genome and reduced representation resequencing and SNP chips.
