About the book
Genetics is an area of continuous expansion in which studies are constantly sought. The concept of genetic diversity is the total number of genetic characteristics in the genetic makeup of species. The genetic diversity of organisms is essential for their ability to adapt to the environment, allowing variations in alleles distribution among populations located in different localities and environments which exert various challenges. Understanding the genetic diversity of organisms is crucial for understanding their dynamics and adaptive evolution, and therefore allowing better species management and conservation actions. It is also worth mentioning that genetic diversity is a source of interesting characteristics which can be used in improvement and development of biotechnological tools. On the other hand, genetic diversity is the basis for molecular markers development that aims to find polimorphic regions.
For this book original researches on genetic diversity will be selected to present relevant data.
