Crop Breeding: Bioinformatics and Preparing for Climate Change (Hardback)

£98.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.











Climate change will severely impact the world's food supply unless steps are taken to increase crop resilience. Otherwise, the negative effects on both the yield and the quality of crop plants are predicted to be immense. Plant genomics is a potentially powerful defense against this looming threat.





This compendium volume offers a global perspective on the topic, with contributions from 42 eminent researchers from 12 nations around the world. The editor is a respected and published scientist in the bioinformatics field, who has chosen articles in the following topics:









An overview of the genetic challenges presented by climate change

A genomic toolkit for crop-related research

Specific methods of improvement for specific crop by means of genomic applications





The hand-picked up-to-date research makes this volume an excellent reference not only for university-level academics, but also for policymakers and stakeholders who must tackle the challenge of the world's food security.
