Next-generation sequencing strategies have opened new vistas for molecular plant breeding. The sequence information obtained by the advent of next-generation sequencing provides a valuable tool not only for improving domesticated crops but also for investigating the natural evolution of crops. Such information provides an enormous potential for sustainable agriculture. In this review, we discuss how such sequencing approaches have transformed exome sequencing into a practical utility that has enormous potential for crop improvement in agriculture. Furthermore, we also describe the future of crop improvement beyond the exome sequencing strategies.
