1. Domestication to 21st century cultivars (i.e. historical introduction but including some modern analysis).- 2. Need for new cultivars (FAO objectives, yield gap, nutritional value, ideotypes, climate change, end uses and target environments).- 3. Utilization of germplasm: wild relatives, land races and modern cultivars (recent molecular studies and genetic structure of landraces, revised taxonomy of wild relatives).- 4. Utilization of genes and their alleles (major genes, QTLs of large effect and polygenes).- 5. Introgression breeding (diploid, tetraploid and marker-assisted).- 6. Population improvement (diploid and tetraploid, base broadening, combining major genes and QTLs and combining polygenes through genomic selection).- 7. Breeding clonally propagated cultivars (diploid and tetraploid, multistage and multi-trait selection).- 8. Seed-tuber production (including problems faced by poor farmers in 'developing countries').- 9. Breeding TPS propagated cultivars (diploid and tetraploid).- 10. Breeding diploid F1 hybrids for TPS propagation.- 11. Genetically modified potatoes.- 12. Breeding for disease and pest resistance (theory, practice and problems).- Index.
