Multilevel comparative bioinformatics to investigate evolutionary relationships and specificities in gene annotations: an example for tomato and grapevine
(BMC Bioinformatics, 2018-11-30)
Background: “Omics” approaches may provide useful information for a deeper understanding of speciation events, diversification and function innovation. This can be achieved by investigating the molecular similarities at ...
Phenotypic and molecular selection of a superior Solanum pennellii introgression sub-line suitable for improving quality traits of cultivated tomatoes
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-02-22)
The Solanum pennellii Introgression Line (IL) population can be exploited to identify favorable alleles that can improve yield and fruit quality traits in commercial tomato varieties. Over the past few years, we have ...
An improved melon reference genome with single-molecule sequencing uncovers a recent burst of transposable elements with potential impact on genes
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2020-01-31)
The published melon (Cucumis melo L.) reference genome assembly (v3.6.1) has still 41.6 Mb (Megabases) of sequences unassigned to pseudo-chromosomes and about 57 Mb of gaps. Although different approaches have been undertaken ...
A comprehensive genome variation map of melon identifies multiple domestication events and loci influencing agronomic traits
(Nature Genetics, 2019-11-01)
Melon is an economically important fruit crop that has been cultivated for thousands of years; however, the genetic basis and history of its domestication still remain largely unknown. Here we report a comprehensive map ...
