Interpretive Summary: Performance of crop species including Sugarcane is one of the most important complex processes of adaptation. It is crucial to explore its underlying mechanisms and processes in order to maximize breeding efforts for crop improvement. Recent advances in genomics approaches have revolutionized our understanding of the crop domestication. In this review, we summarized the cutting-edge studies of crop domestication would help us to utilize some of the advanced genomics approaches to better understand the mechanisms and processes of crop domestication and genes responsible for the traits of importance. The new knowledge and technologies developed will allow us to efficiently improve crop cultivars.
Technical Abstract: Crop domestication occurred ~10,000–12,000 years ago when humans shifted from a hunter–gatherer to an agrarian society. Crops were domesticated by selecting the traits in wild plant species that were suitable for human use. Research is crucial to elucidate the mechanisms and processes involved in modern crop improvement and breeding. Recent advances in genomics have revolutionized our understanding of crop domestication. In this review, we summarized cutting-edge crop domestication research by presenting its (1) methodologies, (2) current status, (3) applications, and (4) perspectives. Advanced genomics approaches have clarified crop domestication processes and mechanisms, and supported crop improvement.
