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 ...
CmVPS41 Is a General Gatekeeper for Resistance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus Phloem Entry in Melon
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-10-01)
Melon production is often compromised by viral diseases, which cannot be treated with chemicals. Therefore, the use of genetic resistances is the main strategy for generating crops resistant to viruses. ...
Prunus genetics and applications after de novo genome sequencing: achievements and prospects
(Horticulture Research, 2019-04-05)
Prior to the availability of whole-genome sequences, our understanding of the structural and functional aspects of Prunus tree genomes was limited mostly to molecular genetic mapping of important traits ...
Selection of Pru p 3 hypoallergenic peach and nectarine varieties
Peach is an important fruit consumed worldwide. However, it is also one of the most frequently reported allergenic fruits. Component diagnosis of peach allergy indicates Pru p 1, Pru p 2, Pru p 3, Pru ...
Exploring sources of resistance to brown rot in an interspecific almond × peach population
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2019-02-19)
BACKGROUND: Monilinia spp. are responsible for brown rot, one of the most significant stone fruit diseases. Planting resistant cultivars seems a promising alternative, although most commercial cultivars ...
High-density genetic map and QTL analysis of soluble solid content, maturity date, and mealiness in peach using genotyping by sequencing
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-08-08)
Peach (Prunus persica) is one of the most important temperate fruit trees in the world, based on its production and cultivated area. Consumer acceptance is the principal objective of multiple breeding ...
