Peppers and eggplants are two leading vegetable crops produced and consumed worldwide. To facilitate the breeding for agronomical traits such as disease resistance and quality, diverse molecular genetic studies have been carried out. Recent achievements on pepper genome sequencing and trait-linked marker development have enabled the cloning of genes involved in useful traits. This book explores the agronomical and evolutionary characteristics of peppers and eggplants and the results of molecular genetic studies. Topics include molecular linkage maps and candidate gene approaches in capsicum and the structure of the pepper genome.
