Two Loci, RiAF3 and RiAF4, Contribute to the Annual-Fruiting Trait in Rubus
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-10-25)
Most Rubus species have a biennial cycle of flowering and fruiting with an intervening period of winter dormancy, in common with many perennial fruit crops. Annual-fruiting (AF) varieties of raspberry ...
From landraces to improved cultivars: Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure of Mediterranean wheat using SNP markers
(Plos One, 2019-07-15)
Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure in crops is essential for breeding and germplasm conservation. A collection of 354 bread wheat genotypes, including Mediterranean landraces and ...
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 ...
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. ...
Transposons played a major role in the diversification between the closely related almond and peach genomes: Results from the almond genome sequence
(Plant Journal, 2019-09-16)
We sequenced the genome of the highly heterozygous almond Prunus dulcis cv. Texas combining short and long‐read sequencing. We obtained a genome assembly totaling 227.6 Mb of the estimated 238 Mb almond ...
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 ...
