The Kiwifruit Genome

The Kiwifruit Genome
Springer | Plant Sciences | June 3, 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319322729 | 269 pages | pdf | 8.44 mb

Editors: Testolin, Raffaele, Huang, Hong-Wen, Ferguson, Allan Ross (Eds.)
Offers essential insights into the latest advances in genome sequencing and analysis
Demonstrates how scientific findings from plant genomics can be used to improve plant breeding
Will be of interest to scientists working in the fields of plant taxonomy, genetics, horticulture, and especially crop breeding

This book describes the basic botanical features of kiwifruit and its wild relatives, reports on the steps that led to its genome sequencing, and discusses the results obtained with the assembly and annotation. The core chapters provide essential insights into the main gene families that characterize this species as a crop, including the genes controlling sugar and starch metabolism, pigment biosynthesis and degradation, the ascorbic-acid pathway, fruit softening and postharvest metabolism, allergens, and resistance to pests and diseases.
The book offers a valuable reference guide for taxonomists, geneticists and horticulturists. Further, since information gained from the genome sequence is extraordinarily useful in assessing the breeding value of individuals based on whole-genome scans, it will especially benefit plant breeders. Accordingly, chapters are included that focus on gene introgression from wild relatives and genome-based breeding.
