Plant Breeding Special Issue

Development and Use of Molecular Markers for Crop Improvement

Feeding the earth´s growing population under the threat of climate change with rising abiotic and biotic stress is a major challenge. Molecular plant breeding paves the way to increase the supply of basic staples which is of special importance in the developing world. This special issue contains 11 papers on talks held at the international symposium “Development and use of molecular markers for crop improvement” in New Delhi, covering all aspects of molecular marker development and application in yield increase via biofortification to drought stress and disease resistance in different crop species, e.g. rice, wheat, maize, pigeon pea.
