BfN Schriften 298 - Applications and potentials of marker assisted selection (MAS) in plant breeding
This report is based on a literature survey, completed with guided expert interviews. Based on the literature survey a questionnaire containing routing questions was developed and served as a basis for telephone interviews with breeders and scientists working within the field of marker-assisted selection.
Following the interviews a workshop was held with experts where results from both the survey and the interviews were further discussed (chapter 6). Not all crops can be covered in this review, thus the focus is restricted to marker application in the main agricultural crops grown in temperate zones.
