Association Mapping in Plants
Edited by Oraguzie, N.C.; Rikkerink, E.H.A.; Gardiner, S.E.; Silva, H.N.d.
For the past decade, there has been success in using conventional map-based strategies in identification and
cloning of quantitative trait loci (QTL) in model plant species including tomato and Arabidopsis. These
quantitative traits are generally the products of many loci with varying degrees of effect upon the observed
phenotypes. Recently, a new approach to genetic mapping has emerged called association mapping. This new
technique takes into account the thousands of genes to evaluate for QTL effect and is a more efficient approach
that does not require generation of segregating populations/large numbers of progeny. As it can utilize all of the
historic recombination events in a diverse population of individuals it can generate higher resolution genetic maps
and, is needed to complement current map based cloning methods.

Association Mapping in Plants provides both basic and advanced understanding of association mapping
and an awareness of population genomics tools to facilitate mapping and identification of the underlying causes
of quantitative trait variation in plants. It acts as a useful review of the marker technology, the statistical methodology,
and the progress to date. It also offers guides to the use of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in
