Molecular Markers in Plant Genetics and Biotechnology
edited by Dominique de Vienne

Molecular Markers in Plant Genetics and Biotechnology includes the history and current concepts on bioterrorism, integrating the scientific, medicinal, public health and health policy strategies.

Features:

  • Details construction of genetic linkage maps
  • Provides a thorough discussion on all Category A bioterrorism agents
  • Includes particular case of mapping of major genes, especially for the purpose of positional cloning
  • Addresses detection and applications of QTLs controlling the expression of quantitative traits
