Genetics and Improvement of Barley Malt Quality
Edited by Zhang, Guoping; Li, Chengdao
Genetics and Improvement of Barley Malt Quality presents up-to-date developments in barley
production and breeding. The book is divided into nine chapters, including barley production and consumption,
germplasm and utilization, chemical composition, protein and protein components, carbohydrates and sugars,
starch degrading enzymes, endosperm cell walls and malting quality, genomics and malting quality improvement,
and marker-assisted selection for malting quality. The information will be especially useful to barley breeders,
malsters, brewers, biochemists, barley quality specialists, molecular geneticists, and biotechnologists. This book
may also serve as reference text for post-graduate students and barley researchers. The authors for each chapter
are the experts and frontier researchers in the specific areas.
