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 and development of ...
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 programs and it is ...
Expression QTL (eQTLs) Analyses Reveal Candidate Genes Associated With Fruit Flesh Softening Rate in Peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch]
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-12-03)
Significant differences in softening rate have been reported between melting flesh in peach and nectarine varieties. This trait seems to be controlled by several genes. We aimed to identify candidate genes involved in fruit ...
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 are susceptible to ...
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 p 4, Pru p 7, and Pru ...
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 genome size, of ...
