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.

Genetic engineering also called genetic modification, it is the modification of an organism's genome using biotechnology. In this new DNA may be inserted in the host genome by isolating and copying the same genetic material of interest using molecular cloning methods to generate a DNA sequence, or by synthesizing the DNA, and then inserting this construct into the host organism. Examples of genetically engineered or transgenic organisms include plants with resistance to some insects, plants that can tolerate herbicides, and crops with modified oil content.

Recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules are DNA molecules formed by using laboratory methods of genetic engineering to bring together genetic material from multiple sources, creating sequences which arenot found in biological organisms. Recombinant DNA is possible because DNA molecules from all organisms share the same chemical structure. They differ only in the nucleotide sequence within that identical overall structure. Recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules are play a important role in techniques like Gene Cloning, PCR, DNA Micro Array etc.

A genetically modified organism (GMO), is also known as a transgenic organism and it is any organism whose genetic material has been modified using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food. Agricultural plants are one of the best examples of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Some benefits of genetic engineering in agriculture are increased crop yields, reduced costs for food or drug production, reduced need for pesticides, enhanced nutrient composition and food quality, resistance to pests and disease, greater food security, and medical benefits to the world's growing population

Genetic variation refers to diversity in gene frequencies. Genetic variation can be referred as differences between individuals or to differences between populations. Mutation is the ultimate source of genetic variation, but mechanisms such as sexual reproduction and genetic drift contribute to it as well. Genetic variation is based on the variation in alleles of genes in a gene pool. It occurs both within and among populations, supported by individual carriers of the variant genes. Genetic variation is brought about by random mutation, which is a permanent change in the chemical structure of a gene

Transporter gene is gene that allows entry of drugs to enter cells and in some cases, it also acts to keep them out. Transporter genes may account for discrepancies in the way drugs such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants and chemotherapy agents work in different people these are also known as a drug-transporter gene. Example for transporter gene is the serotonin transporter gene which has received the most attention in relation to depression, either alone or in conjunction with exposure to stressful life events (i.e. a gene x environment interaction), whereas neuroimaging studies have suggested an association with amygdala activation. There is also some evidence that this gene may predict antidepressant response.

Epigenetics is the study of cellular and physiological variations which are not caused by changes in the DNA sequence. Epigenetics is essentially the study of external or environmental factors that turn genes on and off and affect how cells read genes. Hence epigenetic research seeks to describe dynamic alterations in the transcriptional potential of a cell. At least three systems including DNA methylation, histone modification and non-coding RNA (ncRNA)-associated gene silencing are currently considered to initiate and sustain epigenetic change.

Gene expression is the process by which information from a gene is used in the synthesis of a functional gene product. These products are usually proteins which functions as enzymes, hormones and receptors. Genes which do not code for proteins such as ribosomal RNA or transfer RNA code for functional RNA products. Gene expression is the process by which the genetic code the nucleotide sequence of a gene is used to direct protein synthesis and produce the structures of the cell. Genes that code for amino acid sequences are called as structural genes.

Gene profiling is the measurement of the activity of thousands of genes at time or to create a complete picture of cellular function.Gene expression profiling is the determination of the pattern of genes expressed, at the level of transcription, under specific circumstances or in a specific cell to give a global picture of cellular function. In almost all cells in an organism contain the entire genome of the organism only a small subset of those genes is expressed as messenger RNA (mRNA) at any given time and their relative expression can be evaluated. Techniques which are involved in profiling include DNA microarray technology or sequenced-based techniques such as serial analysis of gene expression.

Gene mutation is any change in the genetic information of any organism. These changes occur at many different levels, and they can have widely differing consequences. Mutations may be caused due to effects of physical agents and chemical agents. Mainly there are different types of mutations which include deletions, insertions, point mutations, substitutions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations etc. Most disease causing gene mutations are uncommon in the general population. However other genetic changes occur more frequently.

Resistance genes are the genes in plant genomes that convey plant disease resistance against pathogens by producing resistance proteins. The main class of R-genes consist of a nucleotide binding domain and a leucine rich repeat domains . Resistance is either innate or acquired which are referring to whether the resistance is newly developed or has always been present in an organism. With the onset of recent genomic, bioinformatics and molecular biology techniques, it is quite possible to tame the R-genes for efficiently controlling the plant diseases caused by pathogens.
