Peanuts have considerable nutrients and are consumed in different forms all over the world since long. Peanut butter is one such product consumed in large quantities especially in western countries since many years. It is not very popular in India and the domestic market is dominated by milk butter. Peanuts are rich in unsaturated fats and other nutrient that may improve Glucose and insulin homeostasis. It also helps in reducing diabetes. It can serve as substitute for red or processed meats. It is very much popular in western countries. Peanut butter is an ideal substitute for milk butter. It is a low calorie, high protein product. Compared to milk butter, its price is very competitive. Peanut butter is most commonly used in sandwiches and as a spread. It is widely used in bakeries and confectioneries. Other uses are in cookies, frosting, cakes, salads, salad dressing, cupcakes, pies, stuffed celery, muffins, biscuits, apples, soup, peanut butter rolls, brownies, vegetable sauces, corn bread, meat loaf, boiled custard, sweet potatoes etc. It is also used in ice-cream and in chocolates. It is also used as table butter in USA and other western countries as being low in calories compared to butter milk. This book, Genetics, Genomics and Breeding of Peanuts, contains an overview of germplasm, advances in genetic and genomic resources, genetic and trait mapping, proteomic and transcriptomic analyses, functional and comparative genomics studies, and molecular breeding applications. This book is a reference tool for students, and researchers to the latest information on peanut genetics and genomics.

To respond to the increasing need to feed the world's population as well as an ever greater demand for a balanced and healthy diet there is a continuing need to produce improved new cultivars or varieties of plants, particularly crop plants. The strategies used to produce these are increasingly based on our knowledge of relevant science, particularly genetics, but involves a multidisciplinary understanding that optimizes the approaches taken. Principles of Plant Genetics and Breeding, 2nd Edition introduces both classical and molecular tools for plant breeding. Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property, risks, emerging concepts (decentralized breeding, organic breeding), and more are addressed in the new, updated edition of this text. Industry highlight boxes are included throughout the text to contextualize the information given through the professional experiences of plant breeders. The final chapters provide a useful reference on breeding the largest and most common crops. Up-to-date edition of this bestselling book incorporating the most recent technologies in the field Combines both theory and practice in modern plant breeding Updated industry highlights help to illustrate the concepts outlined in the text Self assessment questions at the end of each chapter aid student learning Accompanying website with artwork from the book available to instructors

Grain legumes, including common-bean, chickpea, pigeonpea, pea, cowpea, lentil and others, form important constituents of global diets, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Despite this significant role, global production has increased only marginally in the past 50 years. The slow production growth, along with a rising human population and improved buying capacity has substantially reduced the per capita availability of food legumes. Changes in environmental climate have also had significant impact on production, creating a need to identify stable donors among genetic resources for environmentally robust genes and designing crops resilient to climate change. Genetic and Genomic Resources of Grain Legume Improvement is the first book to bring together the latest resources in plant genetics and genomics to facilitate the identification of specific germplasm, trait mapping and allele mining to more effectively develop biotic and abiotic-stress-resistant grains. This book will be an invaluable resource for researchers, crop biologists and students working with crop development. Explores origin, distribution and diversity of grain legumes Presents information on germplasm collection, evaluation and maintenance Offers insight into pre-breeding/germplasm enhancement efforts Integrates genomic and genetic resources in crop improvement Internationally contributed work
