Seeds are the repository of the genetic potential of crop species and their varieties resulting from continuous improvement through plant breeding techniques. It plays an integral role in the global food supply and accounts more than 70 per cent of the calories that we consume on a daily basis. In order to meet increasing global food demand for the growing population, the research as to be done at molecular level to improve seed yield and quality. To developing an established modern seed industry, many characteristics of economically important crops could potentially improve through state of art is OMICS technology; OMICS technologies play an essential role for improving seed quality parametes. Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, interactomics and metabolomics have provided biologists with comprehensive data concerning global gene function and identification, dynamic changes between gene expression, protein identification, function and interaction of entire protein networks of seed developmental physiology and morphology are vital for transcending the gap between fundamental biology knowledge and application towards improved seeds which are important for establishing modern seed industry and plant breeding programs for increased food production.

Key words: Seed Quality, Genomics, Trascriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics.
