Progress in Molecular Biology of Tibetan Hulless Barley

Tibetan hulless barley,as a typical representative of evolution in extreme ecological environment,has attracted extensive attention in the field of molecular biology.In this review,we presented four aspects about the recent progress in molecular biology of Tibetan hulless barley,including,genetic diversity analysis of Tibetan hulless barley,genome and proteomics analysis,analysis of the genes related to the secondary metabolism of Tibetan hulless barley and discussion on the decomposition and synthesis of the main nutritional componentβ-glucan in Tibetan hulless barley.Finally,the shortcomings of molecular biology of Tibetan hulless barley were discussed,and the future research directions were prospected.
