Biology of Brassica crops – origins, taxonomy, genetics & breeding

Brassica flowers

OECD has published (18 Dec 2012) a remarkably comprehensive overview of the biology of Brassica crops covering their origins, taxonomy, reproductive biology, genetics, ecology, plant breeding, and even intergeneric hybrids. Brassica vegetables are grown on 3.4 million hectares (Mha), while oilseeds cover no less than 26 Mha. This anonymous document (“Canada served as the lead country”) is designed to be a “snapshot” of current information for use during regulatory assessments of biotechnology, but the information is valuable to all researchers in the group too.
