Tomato molecular breeding – a mini-review of latest achievements
Summary.

Solanum lycopersicum L. is one the most widely grown vegetables in the world. Unfortunately, due to the domestication syndrome and intensive artificial selection this important crop has exper­ienced severe genetic bottlenecks (so-called genetic erosion). The introduction of new alleles makes the basis for tomato improvement. However, it is difficult to introgress the targeted allele accurately, with favourable effect and eliminate unfavourable ones. It is a common problem in germplasm collection management and breeding programmes. Modern molecular techniques and pre-breeding (trait introgression from wild relatives) may help to increase the species diversity. Genome maps and PCR-based techniques are commonly used to identify, map and target the functional diversity of genes and QTLs encoding many biologically and agriculturally important traits of tomatoes. They are also used for germplasm screening, fingerprinting, and marker-assisted breeding. The aim of this mini-review was to summarise recent advances in tomato molecular breeding.

Key words: introgression lines, molecular maps, QTLs
