Genome sequencing has become a basic tool of plant and animal breeding. Reduced costs have allowed the sequencing of thousands of plant lines or cultivars, leading to previously unobtainable insights into genetic impacts during breeding and generating large numbers of novel candidate breeding genes. This book summarizes the impacts that the genome sequencing revolution has had on agriculture with reference to applications across species and locations. It explains new techniques and their use in understanding epigenetics, breeding and conservation. It is a useful resource for scientists wanting to learn how different fields of agriculture have adapted novel genome sequencing technologies to their requirements, and for those wanting to transfer technologies and lessons learned from one field of agriculture to another.

This book is a useful resource for students and researchers in biotechnology, genetics, genomics and breeding.

Philipp Bayer, PhD

Dr. Philipp Bayer finished his PhD at the University of Queensland where he worked on novel crop genotyping techniques applied in canola and wheat. He then moved to the University of Western Australia where he has been central in establishing pangenome pipelines in a variety of crops from Brassica to soybean and wheat. As a Forrest Fellow he now works on the genomics of native Australian species, canola and other Brassicaceae, soybean, and other crops.
