At present, there is not much information available on molecular markers and genes associated with aflatoxin contamination that can be used in molecular breeding. Therefore, identification of markers and genes conferring resistance to aflatoxin resistance is a must for deploying molecular breeding approaches to develop superior lines with enhanced resistance to aflatoxin.
