Abstract
Improving the amino acid balance of grain has been a long-standing objective of plant-breeding research. In this chapter, we review the history of maize breeding for improved amino acid balance. Following this, we present results of our experiments involving divergent selection for the levels of the amino acids tryptophan and methionine in random-mated populations.
