Exploiting Genetic and Genomic Resources to Enhance Heat-Tolerance in Tomatoes
High temperature is one of the most detrimental abiotic stresses in tomatoes. Many studies highlighted that even small increases in temperature can alter the plant reproductive system, causing a significant reduction in ...
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 ...
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 ...
