Abstract:
Cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) is a significant seed spice and one of the earliest known minor spices. It is an aromatic plant included in the Apiaceae family and is used to flavor foods, added to fragrances, and used in medicinal preparations. Its fruit, known as cumin seed, is yellow to brownish-gray in color. Biotechnological tools such as molecular markers are one of the effective tools, which facilitate the plant breeder to develop new varieties and breeding strategies for crop improvement programmes.
Keywords: Cumin cyminum, seeds, aromatic, Apiaceae, explants, molecular.
