While the Human Genome Project has received much public attention, the deciphering of the plant genome, in particular in crop plants, is of great importance for science and industry in such fields as agriculture, biotechnology, and food. It is equally crucial for our understanding of the molecular basis of biodiversity.

This is the first book on the market to cover this topic in such detail, and is set apart by its combination of genetic and physical mapping. Throughout, each chapter begins with an easy-to-read introduction, also making the book the first reference designed for non-specialists and newcomers, too.
