Genetics and Genomics of Tropical and Subtropical Crop Plants
- View All
Tropical and subtropical plants represent much of the plant biodiversity and are economically important for hundreds of millions of people. The major producers of tropical and subtropical crops are in developing countries and hundreds of millions of people depend on these plants for their livelihood. Compared with temperate crops, tropical and subtropical crops were underexploited due to limited resources available for tropical and subtropical crop research. the proposed projectis to understand the genetic basis of productivity and quality of tropical and subtropical crops and to develop genomics tools for tropical and subtropical crop improvement.
