Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Omics and Biotechnology in China by ProQuest

VIEWS: 20 PAGES: 12

Peanut is one of the most important crops in the world, both for vegetative oil and as a protein source. Biotechnology approaches provide promising ways to increase peanut productivity, either through improved seed quality or stress resistance. These approaches require the identification of genes that control important agronomical traits, the understanding of gene regulation and metabolic pathways, as well as ways of delivering genes or small RNAs into peanut plants. Because of these requirements, extensive studies have focused on peanut functional genomics and biotechnology, and have made great strides during the past decades. This review summarized the advances in peanut omics and biotechnology in China. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
