Key Features

  • Includes the latest information on the molecular breeding and bioinformatics of palms
  • Covers past and current work and future opportunities
  • Written in simple language avoiding technical jargon

Description

Bioinformatics offers novel tools and resources to analyze plant genomes and genes. The complete genomes of two important commercial palms (dates and oil palm) have recently been sequenced. This offers scope for many computational tools to decipher the synteny, collinearity and common and unique genes of palms.

This book reviews the latest developments in this field.

Readership

Graduate students, teachers and researchers of genetics, biotechnology, bioinformatics, horticulture, and molecular biology
