Genetic and Genomics Resources in Finger Millet
( 3539 reads)
Finger millet is serving as a staple food for millions of poor people living on the most marginal agricultural lands. Owing to its ability to grow under varied agro-climatic and resource poor conditions, it can be a valuable resource for understanding genomics of tolerance to various abiotic stresses and important genes and alleles from finger millet can be utilized for crop improvement.
Tomato Genome For Comparative Genomics
( 2522 reads)
The tomato genome sequenced by International Tomato genome Sequencing Consortium presently serves as a powerful resource to identify gene functions and clone agronomically important genes and alleles not only from tomato but also from less studied crop species through comparative analysis across the Solanaceae species.
Omics Approaches for Identification of Stress Responsive Genes
( 4420 reads)
Comparative study of transcripts, proteins and metabolites in stressed and un-stressed crop plants help to pick important stress associated genes, products which can be useful in providing various levels of tolerance. These three omics approaches have a fundamental difference from genomics in that these are dynamic in nature where as genome is static across the tissues and lifetime of an individual..
