With the recent technological advances in genomics research, utilizing genomics for enhancing the precision and efficiency of crop breeding has become a possibility. And a paradigm shift from marker assisted breeding to “genomics-assisted breeding” is under way.

Apart from the agricultural crops, specific attention is being placed on non-crop plants which play a major role in supporting the life style requirements. Medicinal plants have potential properties that would alleviate oxidative stresses with regard to human diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and inflammatory diseases. Recent technological advances have used various approaches to build up genomic resources for such non-crop plants; these data provide abundant genomic resources for downstream analyses.
