Principle of Simple Sequence Repeats (SSR) and Their Application in Plant Breeding. Since life began on earth about 3 billion years ago, the biodiversity of the plants on our planet have gone through numerous natural selection and evolutionary changes, producing a rich and diverse ecosystem supporting life in various geographical regions and climates.
What is Plant Breeding? Plant breeders develop new varieties that are productive, nutritious, and adapted to a changing climate. By combining field-based evaluation and selection with the latest genomics technologies, plant breeders provide the world with better food, feed, fiber, and renewable fuel, and contribute to sustainable landscapes.
Breeding plant varieties with improved yield, more efficient use of nutrients, resistance to plant pests and diseases, salt and drought tolerance and better adaptation to climatic stress can sustainably increase productivity and product quality in agriculture, horticulture and forestry, whilst minimizing the pressure on the natural environment.
