Plants are confronted with numerous biotic stresses that may affect productivity. Besides their constitutive defence, plants can activate specific metabolic processes to enhance resistance upon stress detection. These defence mechanisms can also be activated through the recognition of plant...

The global population is rapidly increasing and will surpass 10 billion people within the next 20 years. As diminishing resources continue to impact agriculture, and with the necessity to feed the world by 2050, the agricultural sector must be able to sustainably and efficiently produce...

In classical genetics and plant breeding, plant phenotypes are explained by genotype, environment and their interactions. Currently, the epigenetic component is recognized as another element functioning together with genetics and environment to determine phenotypic traits. Understanding the...

Advances in genomic technologies have decreased costs associated with research and led to a better understanding of the impact of genetic variations on livestock production traits. In this context, the collection of abundant, accurate phenotypic data has often become the limiting factor in the...

Epigenetic and chromatin modifications have important roles in governing gene activity and nuclear architecture. They are also necessary for normal embryonic development and cell differentiation. Early epigenetic programming events during mouse embryogenesis are believed to be essential for normal...

In the last few years, tremendous resources have become available for genetic researchers. These include extensive software, genomic databases containing genotype and phenotype data, and population reference panels with genotyping and next-generation sequencing data. Navigating these resources can...

Metabolomics is a rapidly growing discipline and has been used recently to evaluate the effect of postharvest processes of fruit and to elucidate pathways involved. Most applications so far are limited to metabolic fingerprinting to discriminate phenotypes and metabolic profiling to identify...

Genomic or whole-genome selection represents a technological development in the use of a large number of genetic markers for genetic improvement, which is expected to lead to a paradigm shift in the design and implementation of livestock breeding programmes. Genomic selection (GS) is based on the...

Most economically important traits in farm animals, such as daily gain, muscularity, meat quality, milk production, reproduction and others, are complex multifactorial traits that are controlled by an unknown number of genes combined with environmental factors. Since these traits show a continuous...

Most applications of genomic selection (GS) have so far been in animals, especially dairy cattle, although theoretical studies have also been conducted for maize. For the last 50 years, commercial breeding programmes for dairy cattle have been based on the progeny test scheme, which results in an...
