Description of Plant Genetics and Molecular Biology 1st Edition (PDF)

Plant Genetics and Molecular Biology by Rajeev K. Varshney, Manish K. Pandey & Annapurna Chitikineni is a great book available for (PDF) download. The elimination of hunger and malnutrition from society is a key challenge of all agricultural stakeholders around the world. Feeding the global population has never been so challenging, especially in the context of diminishing land and water resources, an ever-increasing global population, and climate change. The only solution may be to develop climate-smart plant varieties that are produced with appropriate agricultural management practices. Today, agriculture is facing an acute shortage of advanced germplasms to replace inferior varieties in farmers’ fields. A “game-changer” strategy for the development of improved germplasm and cultivation practices needs to be implemented quickly and precisely to tackle both current and future adverse environmental conditions.

Fast-evolving technologies can serve as a potential growth engine in agriculture because many of these technologies have revolutionized other industries in the recent past. The tremendous advancements in biotechnology methods, cost-effective sequencing technology, refinement of genomic tools, standardization of modern genomics-assisted breeding methods, and digitalization of the entire breeding process and value chain hold great promise for taking global agriculture to the next level through the development of improved climate-smart seeds. These technologies can dramatically increase our capacity for understanding the molecular basis of traits and utilizing the available resources for accelerated development of stable, high-yield, nutritious, efficient, and climate-smart crop varieties. These improved crop varieties and agricultural practices will help us to address global food security issues in an equitable and sustainable manner.
