By Surinder Kumar Gupta Ph.D. (auth.), Surinder Kumar Gupta (eds.)

Despite the new advances made within the development of crucifer plants utilizing traditional breeding strategies, the yield degrees and the oil and meal caliber couldn't be more advantageous as anticipated. the knowledge of genetic fabric (DNA/RNA) and its manipulation by means of scientists has supplied the chance to enhance crucifers through expanding its range past traditional genetic barriers. the appliance of the biotechnological innovations could have significant affects in methods: first, it presents a few techniques/methods for effective choice for favorable versions and moment, it provides a chance to make use of alien version to be had within the crucifers through the use of the radical thoughts of biotechnology to advance excessive yielding forms with reliable dietary caliber, having resistance to insect, pest, and disorder resistance.

2009). Microspore culture is relatively simpler and more effective to produce a DH population, which helps breeders develop homozygous lines from heterozygous parents in a single generation and allows fixing the recombinant gametes directly as fertile homozygous lines (Pratap et al. 2009). The BC2S3 lines from a cross between Brassica napus and B. carinata were fixed by Navabi et al. (2010) using microspore culture. Besides shortening breeding cycle, microspore culture also can be helpful in experimental purposes.
