Many staple food crops, such as banana, cassava, potato, sweet potato, sugarcane, taro, yam, are propagated vegetatively. Crop improvement using vegetative propagules has special challenges compared with breeding of seed propagated species. Genetic variability is a fundamental necessity for crop...

The rapid drop in cost and increase in throughput of nucleic acid sequencing has provided many opportunities for aquaculture genetics and breeding. Genome-wide genetic marker data can now be readily generated in a cost-effective manner, even for species without extensive prior genomic tools. The...
