Cover for How the Focused Identification of Germplasm Strategy (FIGS) is used to mine plant genetic resources collections for adaptive traits.

The FIGS (Focused Identification of Germplasm Strategy) is an alternative approach to searching germplasm accessions that aims to maximize the likelihood of capturing specific adaptive traits in subsets, flexible in size and make-up, sourced from one or more genebanks. This chapter explores how...
