- Display Note: Abstract: The past decade has seen unparalleled advances in our understanding of plant genomes, and genomic (primarily DNA sequence) information now underpins many aspects of plant trait improvement, through gene discovery to transgenesis and use of molecular markers in breeding. This chapter provides an overview of the genomic and postgenomic technologies that are likely to have the greatest impacts on agronomy over the next 10–20 years and describes a number of case studies of their application. Although the impacts of these technologies are already apparent, the amazing and still accelerating pace of technology development promises much, maybe more than can easily be assimilated into traditional plant improvement programs at present. A new breed of plant scientist with skills in understanding and integrating multiple disciplines, and making use of increasingly sophisticated computational approaches, is needed to take full advantage of even the present knowledge.
