In this talk, Potential, Progress and Limitations of Genomics Assisted Breeding will be covered. It will discuss regarding genome research and the ways in which genomics tools can be used for further improving and sustaining crop productivity in more precise way. Further, it will highlight how hybridization based DNA markers RFLPs, PCR based markers RAPD, AFLP™ , SSR, sequence based markers SNPs and GBS has revolutionized the approach for looking at both qualitative and quantitative traits and how using these markers comprehensive linkage maps have been developed. Finally, some examples will also be discussed along with the applications of Genome Research in Crop Improvement.
