This book provides both basic and advanced understanding of association mapping and an awareness of population genomics tools to facilitate mapping and identification of the underlying causes of quantitative trait variation in plants. It acts as a useful review of the marker technology, the statistical methodology, and the progress to date. It also offers guides to the use of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in association studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Association mapping in plants is a timely, well-planned book that covers most topics related to association mapping in plants . as well as giving insights into the potential impact of association mapping in plant breeding programmes. . can be used both as an introductory book for students and as a manual to design experiments and analyse genetic association date by experienced researchers or breeding program managers. . In conclusion, we recommend Association mapping in plants as an excellent book to researchers and professionals . ." (Santiago C. González-Martínez and Delphine Grivet, Annals of Botany, Vol. 104 (6), November, 2009)
