Induced mutations in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

BK Prasad, G Singh, Rajendra Kumar and AK Sharma
Mutation induction has become an established tool in plant breeding to supplement existing germplasm and to improve cultivars in certain specific traits. Keeping various aspects of barley, large numbers of morphological (reduced plant height, earliness, lax panicle), biochemical (protein), and physiological or conditional (chlorophyll) mutants have been isolated, evaluated and released for commercial cultivation by different institutions of the world. In recent years, interest has rekindled in mutation research, since induced mutagenesis is gaining importance in plant molecular biology as a tool to identify and isolate genes and to study their structure and functions. This review is aimed to provide the up to date information on the various aspects of induced mutants of barley.
