Technical Abstract: Tomato has long been a model crop for plant breeding and genetics research. The research field is diverse and ranges from classical genetics and traditional breeding to structural/functional genomics and metabolomics. This has resulted in a large rapidly expanding volume of literature on the subject. This book provides a current comprehensive review of tomato genetics and breeding research. Plant scientists in the public and private sectors as well as graduate and undergraduate students will benefit from this review.
