Material type: materialTypeLabelBookAnalytics: Show analyticsPublisher: Montevideo (Uruguay) CIMMYT : 2000Description: 17-32.ISBN: 9974-7586-1-0.Subject(s): Agronomic characters | Clones | DNA | Genetic variation | Genomes | Selection | CIMMYT | Triticum | Genetics AGROVOC | Plant breeding AGROVOCDDC classification: 633.1153 Summary: Comparative genetics is a broad field of research with the general goal of estimating similarity at some specific level of organization. The evolution of comparative genetics research from the whole plant level to the DNA level has synergistically expanded our knowledge of genome structure and function due to the complementarity of research among scientists working on different species. In this review, I will present a brief overview of comparative genetics with examples from the Gramineae family that illustrate future directions of comparative genetics research. This presentation will focus on the role of genomic research in crop improvement especially for species with large polyploid genomes and minor crops. The mapping of loci controlling economic traits, trait dissection, and candidate gene analysis will be presented along with examples. The long-term goal is to facilitate the identification of superior alleles for genes of economic importance so that they can be assembled in superior crop cultivars.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
