By Jinguo Hu, Gerald Seiler, C. Kole

The sunflower has involved mankind for hundreds of years. The oilseed sunflower contributes approximately ten percentage of the world’s plant-derived fit for human consumption oil and the confection variety sunflower holds a substantial proportion of the without delay ate up snacks industry. furthermore, sunflower can be grown as a decorative for reduce vegetation, in addition to in domestic gardens. we're now embarking at the age of genomics as a way to expedite the method of genetic development of vegetation. there was an explosion of data on genetic markers, DNA sequences, and genomic assets for many significant nutrition plants together with sunflower. This quantity is meant to bridge conventional study with smooth molecular investigations on sunflower.

2007). It is currently unknown which polyploid species are autopolyploids and which are allopolyploids. The hexaploid H. resinosus is currently being investigated using molecular cytogenetics and markers in order to elucidate species origin through polyploidy (Carrera et al. 2004). 6 Aneuploidy Aneuploids can be the result of interspecific hybridization. Leclercq et al. (1970) obtained trisomic plants (2n+1) in backcross progeny of H. tuberosus x H. annuus hybrids. ) Berl and deToni] and they postulated that the extra chromosome came from the H.
