Genomic Applications for Crop Breeding: Biotic Stress is the first of two volumes looking at the latest advances in genomic applications to crop breeding. This volume focuses on genomic-assisted advances for improving economically important crops against biotic stressors, such as viruses, fungi, nematodes, and bacteria. Looking at key advances in crops such as rice, barley, wheat, and potato amongst others, Genomic Applications for Crop Breeding: Biotic Stress will be an essential reference for crop scientists, geneticists, breeders, industry personnel and advanced students in the field.

Rajeev K. Varshney is a Principal Scientist (Applied Genomics), Director, Centre of Excellence in Genomics and Research Programme Director- Grain Legumes at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Hyderabad (India), and an adjunct Professor at the University of Western Australia in Perth, Australia. Roberto Tuberosa is a Professor in Biotechnology Applied to Plant Breeding in the Department of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Bologna, Italy.
Genomics research has revolutionized the field of crop science. Researchers have mapped the genomes of many key crops, and the genetic information unlocked by these efforts has now matured to the point where they can be applied to practical crop breeding and improvement efforts. Translational Genomics for Crop Breeding spans two volumes that focus, separately and together, on efforts of translating these findings into improved cultivars and populations. Translational Genomics for Crop Breeding: Biotic Stress focuses on improving the resistance of crops to a wide variety of biotic stressors, including viruses, fungal infections and pests. This volume explores the challenges of improving crop traits essential to warding off pathogens and pests in the dynamic environments. Providing timely coverage of on an urgently important topic, Translational Genomics for Crop Breeding: Biotic Stress will be an essential reference for anyone working in the fields of crop breeding, genetics, and improvement.
