Molecular Markers in Plants by Robert J. Henry

By Robert J. Henry

Molecular Markers in Plants surveys an array of applied sciences utilized in the molecular research of crops. The position molecular markers play in plant development has grown considerably as DNA sequencing and high-throughput applied sciences have matured. This well timed assessment of applied sciences and methods will offer readers with an invaluable source at the most recent molecular technologies.

Molecular Markers in Plants not just reports previous achievements, but in addition catalogs contemporary advances and appears ahead in the direction of the long run program of molecular applied sciences in plant development. starting chapters examine the improvement of molecular applied sciences. next chapters examine a variety of purposes for using those advances in fields as different as plant breeding, construction, biosecurity, and conservation. the ultimate chapters glance ahead towards destiny advancements within the field.

Looking largely on the box of molecular applied sciences, Molecular Markers in Plants could be a necessary addition to the library of each researcher, establishment, and corporate operating within the box of plant improvement.

Most of these problems can be resolved by higher coverage. As for Sanger sequencing, the error rate increases with the position in the sequence, this is caused by a reduction in enzyme efficiency or loss of enzymes (resulting in a reduction of the signal intensities), some molecules no longer being elongated. 5%. , 2009). A limitation of the 454 sequencing is to properly interpret long stretches (>6) of the same nucleotide (homopolymer DNA segments); though substitution errors are rarely encountered.
