NEW title on breeding techniques for cereal crops

A new book on cereal crop breeding techniques has been published by award winning Cambridge-based publisher, Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing Limited.

Advances in breeding techniques for cereal crops provides a comprehensive review of breeding techniques for cereals such as wheat, barley maize and rye.

  • Part 1 discusses ways of better exploiting genetic diversity. 
  • Parts 2 & 3 summarise developments in the use of doubled haploids and hybrid breeding methods. Parts 4 & 5 review advances in high throughput phenotyping and its use in identifying markers for breeding.
  • Professor Peter Langridge, University of Adelaide, Australia; Chair of the Scientific Board of the Wheat Initiative says, “This book provides an excellent resource since it brings together leading experts in both the development and application of new technologies. It provides the reader with an authoritative explanation of the technologies and a critical assessment of their implementation in cereal improvement.”
