<b>A thoroughly up-to-date exploration of genotyping-by-sequencing technologies and related methods in plant science</b> <p>In <i>Genotyping by Sequencing for Crop Improvement,</i> a team of distinguished researchers delivers an in-depth and current exploration of the latest advances in genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) methods, the statistical approaches used to analyze GBS data, and its applications, including quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping, genome-wide association studies (GWAS), and genomic selection (GS) in crop improvement. This edited volume includes insightful contributions on a variety of relevant topics, like advanced molecular markers, high-throughput genotyping platforms, whole genome resequencing, QTL mapping with advanced mapping populations, analytical pipelines for GBS analysis, and more. <p>The distinguished contributors explore traditional and advanced markers used in plant genotyping in extensive detail, and advanced genotyping platforms that cater to unique research purposes are discussed, as is the whole-genome resequencing (WGR) methodology. The included chapters also examine the applications of these technologies in several different crop categories, including cereals, pulses, oilseeds, and commercial crops. <i>Genotyping by Sequencing for Crop Improvement</i> also offers: <ul> <li>A thorough introduction to molecular marker techniques and recent advancements in the technology</li> <li>Comprehensive explorations of the genotyping of seeds while preserving their viability, as well as advances in genomic selection</li> <li>Practical discussions of opportunities and challenges relating to high throughput genotyping in polyploid crops</li> <li>In-depth examinations of recent advances and applications of GBS, GWAS, and GS in cereals, pulses, oilseeds, millets and commercial crops</li> </ul> <p>Perfect for practicing plant scientists with an interest in genotyping-by-sequencing technology, <i>Genotyping by Sequencing for Crop Improvement</i> will also earn a place in the libraries of researchers and students seeking a one-stop reference on the foundational aspects of&mdash;and recent advances in&mdash;genotyping-by-sequencing, genome-wide association studies, and genomic selection.
