A Review on the Framework for Identifying High-yielding and Stress-tolerant Oil Palm with Molecular Markers
Keywords:Oil palm, Oil palm breeding, Genetic markers, Molecular markers
The various molecular markers employed in breeding programs have been identified in the last decade of the 20th century. Molecular marker development has significantly altered genetics. Molecular markers are not only utilised in connecting diagrams, but often involved during genetic differences in cultivars and germplasm evaluations in various plant breeding applications. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) and marker-assisted selection (MAS) are among the most interesting molecular markers utilisation. This review primarily aims to offer the knowledge required for the survival of plants developed via new molecular marker techniques and genetic modification implementation in oil palm breeding. Research in palm breeding is critical to gain insights into oil palm growth. This study could serve as a useful guide to understand oil palm development studies and improve existing prediction methods. Genetic markers crucial for oil palm development are also highlighted in the present study. Furthermore, a study gap was also identified.
