Journal of Plant Protection Research 2006;46(1):40 . USDA. Recent Advances in Wheat (Triticum spp.) It is generally considered a field of biology and botany, but intersects frequently with many other life sciences and is strongly linked with the study of information systems.Plant genetics is similar in many ways to animal genetics but differs in a few key areas. Recent Advances In Plant Breeding (Crop Genetic Resources) by Dr. Arvind Kumar. Pages 559-593. Modern plant breeding is considered a discipline originating from the science of genetics. Plant breeding started with sedentary agriculture and particularly the domestication of the first agricultural plants, a practice which is estimated to date back 9,000 to 11,000 years. Food security largely depends on the availability and utilization of this diversity, which is of strategic importance for countries and companies. KEY MESSAGE: Recent advances in Setaria genomics appear promising for genetic improvement of cereals and biofuel crops towards providing multiple securities to the steadily increasing global population. Canola Breeding. Research Faculty. Subsequent advances in our understanding of plant biology, the analysis and induction of genetic variation, cytogenetics, quantitative genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, and, most recently, genomics have been successively applied to further increase the scientific base and its application to the plant breeding process (e.g. Baenziger et al., 2006; Jauhar, 2006; Varshney et al., 2006).
