Reseña del editor
Tomato is a crop grown worldwide which is being increasingly studied particularly from the aspects covered here, i.e. cytology, genetics, breeding and biotechnology. Such a work is the first of its kind and assembles and presents the critical and comprehensive work on genetic improvement of tomatoes. Among the topics covered are
: Reproductive biology and its implications in tomato improvement.- Mitosis and Meiosis studies.- Linkage and Mutagenesis.- Classical and Molecular genetics.- Isozymes and its applications in breeding practices.- Collection, exploration, evaluation, utilization and conservation of germplasm.- Improvement through pedigree-based selection, population improvement, and multitrait selection.- Various aspects of interspecific and intergeneric hybridization.
