Présentation

This volume offers an up-to-date overview of biotechnologically oriented barley research. It is structured into two major sections : the first focusing on current agricultural challenges and approaches to barley improvement, and the second providing insights into recent advances in methodology. Leading scientists highlight topics such as : the global importance of barley ; genetic diversity and genebanks ; domestication ; shoot and inflorescence architecture ; reproductive development ; mineral nutrition ; photosynthesis and leaf senescence ; grain development ; drought tolerance ; viral and fungal pathogens ; phytophagous arthropods ; molecular farming ; sequence resources ; induced genetic variation and TILLING ; meiotic recombination ; Hordeum bulbosum ; genome-wide association scans ; genomic selection ; haploid technology ; genetic engineering ; and whole plant phenomics. Providing comprehensive information on topics ranging from fundamental aspects to specific applications, this book offers a useful resource for scientists, plant breeders, teachers and advanced students in the fields of molecular and plant cell biology, plant biotechnology, and agronomy.
