Marker assisted selection (MAS) is a process whereby a marker. A marker is used for indirect selection of a genetic determinant or determinants of a trait of interest for e.g. productivity, disease resistance, abiotic stress tolerance, and quality. This process is used in plant and animal breeding. These markers are of basically four type which include morphological, biochemical, cytological, DNA based or molecular based markers.Plant breeders now use marker-assisted selection (MAS).The markers are a string or sequence of nucleic acid which makes up a segment of DNA. The markers are located near the DNA sequence of the desired gene and are transmitted by the standard laws of inheritance from one generation to the next.
