Genomic Applications for Crop Breeding: Abiotic Stress, Quality and Yield Improvement is the second of two volumes looking at the latest advances in genomic applications to crop breeding. This volume focuses on advances improving crop resistance to abiotic stresses such as extreme heat, drought, flooding as well as advances made in quality and yield improvement. Chapters examine advances in such key crops as rice, maize, and sugarcane, among others. Genomic Applications for Crop Breeding: Abiotic Stress, Quality and Yield Improvement  complements the earlier volume on biotic stressors and will be an essential purchase for those interested in crop science and food production.

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 routinely applied to breeding efforts. Translational Genomics in Crop Breeding spans two volumes that focus, separately and together, on efforts of translating these findings into improved cultivars and populations. Translational Genomics in Crop Breeding: Abiotic Stress, Yield and Quality focuses on issues of abiotic stressors, such as soil conditions, water availability and temperature, as well as efforts to improve overall nutritional quality and yield of key crops. Genomic technologies show great promise to increasing yields and nutritional value of crops in unfavorable environments. This volume reviews the latest advances and future directions in applying genomic-assisted breeding technologies to improving key food crops. Comprehensively reviewing a rapidly advancing field, Translational Genomics in Crop Breeding: Abiotic Stress, Yield, and Quality is an essential reference for anyone working in the fields of crop breeding, genetics and improvement.
