Sources of genetic information for molecular breeding of grasses

Sources of genetic information for molecular breeding of grasses

Proceedings of the Thirty Seventh Grass Breeders' Work Planning Conference, Moscow, Idaho, USA/Pullman, Washington, USA, 14-17 May, 2002: 53-64

Molecular genetic tools have been utilized at a much slower pace for forage and turf grasses than for the human food crops. Recently, however, molecular marker systems have been incorporated in grass breeding to assist in selecting desirable genotypes, to examine genetic diversity and cultivar stability, and to be used for cultivar identification. Molecular tests range from ploidy determination using flow cytometry to exact DNA sequence identification of specific genes.
