By Harold Corke, Charles E. Walker, Colin Wrigley

The Encyclopedia of Grain Science is an in-depth and authoritative reference overlaying all parts of grain technology. assurance comprises every little thing from the genetics of grains to the industrial, fiscal and social features of this significant meals resource. additionally coated are the biology and chemistry of grains, the utilized elements of grain creation and the processing of grains into numerous foodstuff and beverage items. With the paramount function of cereals as a world nutrients resource, this Encyclopedia is bound to turn into the normal reference paintings within the box of science.

Also on hand on-line through ScienceDirect - that includes large looking, looking out, and inner cross-referencing among articles within the paintings, plus dynamic linking to magazine articles and summary databases, making navigation versatile and straightforward. for additional information, pricing suggestions and availability stopover at www.info.sciencedirect.com.

SNP and STS markers are being used to saturate chromosome regions with low recombination frequencies and low marker densities. Two barley yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) libraries and a barley artificial chromosome (BAC) library have been developed. The BAC library will be a useful tool for physical mapping of the barley chromosomes and map-based cloning. Despite the potential of MAS to improve quantitative traits, there are only a few examples of the application of this technique in applied breeding programs.

Statistical techniques are used to determine if there is a relationship between particular phenotypes and the occurrence of specific marker alleles. If the relationship is significant, then it is assumed that a QTL for the trait is closely linked to that marker. Hayes et al. htm), including traits associated with abiotic stress resistance, agronomic traits, biotic stress resistance, and malting quality. More than 750 QTLs have been identified, and for each category, QTLs have been distributed across all seven chromosomes.
