About the book
The plant family Asteraceae has several species of economic and medicinal importance. The latest Asteraceae research has opened up new opportunities for crop improvement and conservation. This book will discuss the current advances in biotechnology, genetic diversity, molecular breeding, genotyping, association mapping studies, biofortification, comparative and functional genomics, and epigenomics approaches in Asteraceae. The book also discusses biotic and abiotic stresses and their signaling mechanisms, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics approaches in Asteraceae. Current research trends, future research directions, and challenges are also highlighted and discussed. This book will be a self-contained collection of scholarly papers targeting an audience of practicing researchers, botanists, academics, students, and scientists.
