Molecular approaches in cassava breeding

Code: 9781838790646
Luis Augusto Becerra Lopez-Lavalle, International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), Colombia

Chapter synopsis: In cassava, as for other major crops, molecular markers can reveal the genetic basis for both qualitative and quantitative phenotypic changes. This chapter examines the genetic diversity of cassava, the process of marker-assisted selection (MAS) and the application of genome sequencing to cassava. The chapter looks ahead to the future potential of genetic engineering of cassava.
