193 Symposium--Bioinformatics for Crop Improvement: Assay Design and Applications

Oral Session
ASA Section: Biometry and Statistical Computing Innovations in genomic research and application development provide new resources for research in applied plant species for crop improvement (from a review by Mochida and Shinozaki, 2010). An approach using multiple platforms and integration is an effective strategy for understand molecular processes important to improving plant productivity. Bioinformatics platforms and their associated databases are also essential for the effective design of approaches making the best use of genomic resources. This symposium will cover basic plant bioinformatics tools and innovations in gene/positive allele and SNP selection and application in plant breeding.
