Chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflora Tzvelve syn. Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat.) is one of the most important flowering crop in the world. Flowers are highly prized for its varied color, form, size, shape and use. Developing Chrysanthemum cultivars with novel characteristic for its different flower color, shape, size, flowering time, postharvest quality tolerance for biotic and abiotic stress. In recent years, researchers have used various conventional and non-conventional breeding techniques to understand the classification studies, correlation and association both at morphological and molecular level, including transgenic technology, genome editing, and marker-assisted selection (MAS) with the wild relatives for introducing various ornamental traits from wild types to cultivated varieties. Moreover, the recent extensive advances in high-throughput technologies, especially genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and microbiomics, which are collectively referred to as omics platforms, have led to the collection of substantial amounts of data. Major traits which are targeted through biotechnological approaches includes development of novel flower colours, altered flower and plant morphology, insect-pest and disease resistance and enhanced post-harvest attributes. This review summarizes the recent achievements in conventional and modern molecular breeding methods and emerging technologies for improvement in chrysanthemum for floriculture point of view.
