Review quote

`Overall, the book is a very useful overview of DNA marker technology. It nicely complements existing manuals, such as DNA Marker: Protocols, Applications and Overviews. Many graduate students, researchers beginning in a new area or those wishing to learn about this fast developing field will also find it worthwhile. It could also be useful for plant breeders, and bioinformatics specialists serving the plant science community.'
Plant Science, 161 (2001)
