Society for the Advancement
of Breeding Research
in Asia and Oceania

About us

SABRAO is a society devoted to basic and practical aspects of plant genetics and breeding research. The SABRAO Journal of Breeding and Genetics is published by the Society and focuses on plant species or topics that are relevant to developing countries in Asia and Oceania. The journal operates on a not-for-profit basis. Scientists from the region are cordially invited to become members.

The Society holds a general assembly approximately every four years, often in association with a kindred society, and through its regional and sectional organizations, and sponsors meetings for special interest groups as the needs and opportunities arise.

NEXT SABRAO CONGRESS-Indonesia 2015

The next SABRAO congress will be held in Indonesia in 2015 around June (dates and venue to be confirmed). Details will be circulated to members by email and posted on the website.

NEW SCOPE

Plant breeding has changed considerably in the last 20 years. The Editorial Board has decided that from 2013 onwards, the scope of SABRAO J. Breed. Genet. will focus on specific topics of breeding and genetics research that are of direct practical relevance to plant breeders. Classical quantitative genetics research will be considered in the context of how useful the research is to breeders. Authors conducting research in the following topics will be encouraged to submit their articles to the journal:

  • Molecular breeding (e.g. marker assisted selection)
  • QTL mapping and validation
  • Genetic diversity analysis – primarily using DNA markers
  • Use of agronomic, morphological or physiological traits in selection
  • Multi-environment trial analysis
  • Germplasm evaluation
  • New methods (e.g. phenotyping methods) of broad interest to breeders
  • Classical quantitative genetics investigating the genetic control of simple or oligogenic traits, trait heritabilities, combining ability

Other topics may be submitted after consultation with the Editorial Board. Review articles are welcomed by the journal.

CALL FOR SOCIETY MEMBERS TO BE REVIEWERS FOR OUR JOURNAL

The SABRAO journal continues to receive a large number of articles. Reviewers play a critical role for the journal by evaluating and editing manuscripts. Interested society members - especially on topics involving quantitative genetics and genetic diversity - are encouraged to register as a potential reviewer for manuscripts submitted to the journal by emailing the Editor-in-Chief.

A NEW ELECTRONIC JOURNAL SYSTEM

From 2013 onwards, the journal will completely move to an electronic format with open access. All articles will be published as pdf files on the website. This was a unamnimous decision made during the SABRAO General Meeting held in January 2012 based on providing greater access for the journal and due to the financial status of the society. Limited printing of hard copies will still continue mainly for institutions or libraries by subscription.
