Journal of Plant Breeding and Genetics is an open-access, peer-reviewed, international journal devoted to providing opportunities for original as well as extended versions of published researches. Journal of Plant Breeding and Genetics publishes original and review articles by internationally recognized researchers, covering all areas of plant genetics, genetics and related interface. The journal focuses on crop plants and is therefore of interest to seed companies and the plant breeding industry as well as to researchers and teachers in this field. Journal publishes original research covering all areas of theoretical and applied plant breeding and genetics. Journal is a periodical for the publication of records of original research in all branches of genetics, plant breeding and cytology, including molecular biology, biotechnology and other related sciences of sufficient importance and of such a character as to be of the primary interest to the geneticist and plant breeders.
Plant breeding is the science of changing the traits of plants in order to produce desired characteristics. The most frequently addressed traits are those related to biotic and abiotic stress tolerance, grain or biomass yield, end-use quality characteristics such as taste or the concentrations of specific biological molecules proteins, sugars, lipids, vitamins, fibers and ease of processing harvesting, milling, baking, malting, blending, etc. Genes in a plant are what determine what type of qualitative or quantitative traits it will have. Plant breeders strive to create a specific outcome of plants and potentially new plant varieties. It is practiced worldwide by individuals such as gardeners and farmers, and by professional plant breeders employed by organizations such as government institutions, universities, crop-specific industry associations or research centers. International development agencies believe that breeding new crops is important for ensuring food security by developing new varieties that are higher yielding, disease resistant, drought tolerant or regionally adapted to different environments and growing conditions.
Plant breeding , application of genetic principles to produce plants that are more useful to humans. This is accomplished by selecting plants found to be economically or aesthetically desirable, first by controlling the mating of selected individuals, and then by selecting certain individuals among the progeny. Such processes, repeated over many generations, can change the hereditary makeup and value of a plant population far beyond the natural limits of previously existing populations. This article emphasizes the application of genetic principles to the improvement of plants; the biological factors underlying plant breeding are dealt with in the article heredity. For a discussion on transgenic crops, see genetically modified organism. Plant breeding is an ancient activity, dating to the very beginnings of agriculture. Probably soon after the earliest domestications of cereal grains , humans began to recognize degrees of excellence among the plants in their fields and saved seed from the best for planting new crops.

Many think it is time for another green revolution, one that utilizes technological innovation in smart, sustainable ways. Humans depend on plants for food, feed, fiber, and fuel--as well as less tangible aspects of life such as aesthetics and environmental stability. This paper is the first in a series that connects science and technology to agriculture, and it focuses on the critical importance of innovation in plant breeding to meet the challenge of providing food and nutritional security to humankind. The ultimate goal of plant breeding is to develop improved crops through enhanced productivity, processing, marketing, and quality. The authors of this issue paper use science-based information and peer-review methods to establish the importance of plant breeding innovation, and they cover several key areas:.
Modern agricultural technology and the introduction of new high-yielding varieties are largely eliminating the wide range of crop genetic diversity that has evolved during the five to ten thousand years since food plants were first domesticated. Related wild species are also on the decline because of new land use policies. These gene pools or what is left of them are generally spoken of as genetic resources, and are vitally needed in the creation of new crop varieties by plant breeders. Wild species and land races often furnish genes conferring resistance to diseases and pests and adaptation to environmental stresses which cannot be found in the modern crop varieties. The study of genetic diversity of crops, its storage in gene banks or in natural reserves, its evaluation and enhancement, are briefly described.
Plant breeding, and agriculture have contributed significantly to crop yields, and consequently to the global economy. Several articles, reports, and surveys have evaluated the impacts of plant breeding on global agriculture. Plant breeding information and links are provided for areas of interest.

- Я являюсь заместителем оперативного директора агентства. - Усталая улыбка промелькнула на его лице. - И потом, я не. Рядом со мной Сьюзан Флетчер. В тот момент Сьюзан поняла, за что уважает Тревора Стратмора.
У АН Б не было иного выбора, кроме как остановить его любой ценой. Арест и депортация Танкадо, широко освещавшиеся средствами массовой информации, стали печальным и позорным событием. Вопреки желанию Стратмора специалисты по заделыванию прорех такого рода, опасаясь, что Танкадо попытается убедить людей в существовании ТРАНСТЕКСТА, начали распускать порочащие его слухи.
Поскольку в шифровалке имелось автономное энергоснабжение, на главный распределительный щит, наверное, даже не поступил сигнал, что здесь произошла авария. - Основное энергоснабжение вырубилось, - сказал Стратмор, возникший за спиной Сьюзан. - Включилось питание от автономных генераторов. Это аварийное электропитание в шифровалке было устроено таким образом, чтобы системы охлаждения ТРАНСТЕКСТА имели приоритет перед всеми другими системами, в том числе освещением и электронными дверными замками. При этом внезапное отключение электроснабжения не прерывало работу ТРАНСТЕКСТА и его фреоновой системы охлаждения.

Поехали. Свет от фары пробежал по цементным стенам. - В главный банк данных попал вирус, - сказал Бринкерхофф. - Я знаю, - услышала Сьюзан собственный едва слышный голос. - Нам нужна ваша помощь.
Четыре. Три. Эта последняя цифра достигла Севильи в доли секунды. Три… три… Беккера словно еще раз ударило пулей, выпущенной из пистолета. Мир опять замер .
