Citation: Razdan, M.K., Mattoo, A.K. 2005. Genetic improvement of solanaceous crops Volume I:Potato. Enfield, NH: Science Publishers, Inc. 451 pgs.

Interpretive Summary: Advances in non-conventional molecular and biotechnological applications have opened new avenues for genetic improvement of crops. Major institutions recognize the need for a constant flow and exchange of information about developments in several of these areas. Potato is the fourth largest crop whose efficient genetic manipulation for enhancing quality and productivity is expected to meet the demands of the consumer and processing industry. In this edited book, 'Genetic Improvement of Solanaceous Crops. Vol. I: Potato', we capture the recent advances made in improving potatoes using traditional breeding methods as well as genetic engineering technology. It contains fifteen chapters written by experts from international institutes and organizations who have coordinated efforts for improvement of potato and developed basic fundamental information on several aspects of potato genetics, pathology and physiology. This book will be useful to potato breeders, specialists, potato industry, teachers and students.
