pSBVB: A versatile simulation tool to evaluate genomic selection in polyploid species
Genomic Selection (GS) is the procedure whereby molecular information is used to predict complex phenotypes and it is standard in many animal and plant breeding schemes. However, only a small number ...
High-density multi-population consensus genetic linkage map for peach
(PLOS ONE, 2018-11-21)
Highly saturated genetic linkage maps are extremely helpful to breeders and are an essential prerequisite for many biological applications such as the identification of marker-trait associations, mapping ...
An improved assembly and annotation of the melon (Cucumis melo L.) reference genome
(Scientific Reports, 2018-05-24)
We report an improved assembly (v3.6.1) of the melon (Cucumis melo L.) genome and a new genome annotation (v4.0). The optical mapping approach allowed correcting the order and the orientation of 21 ...
QTL mapping of melon fruit quality traits using a high-density GBS-based genetic map
(BMC Plant Biology, 2018-12-04)
Background Melon shows a broad diversity in fruit morphology and quality, which is still underexploited in breeding programs. The knowledge of the genetic basis of fruit quality traits is important for ...
Role of AMPK signalling pathway during compensatory growth in pigs
(BMC Genomics, 2018-09-17)
Background: The molecular basis of compensatory growth in monogastric animals has not yet been fully explored. Herewith, in this study we aim to determine changes in the pig skeletal muscle transcriptome ...
Identification of a new allele of the Dw gene causing brachytic dwarfing in peach
(BMC Research Notes, 2018-06-14)
Objective Peach brachytic dwarfism determined by Dwarf gene (Dw) is an undesired trait segregating in some peach breeding programs. Recently, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation in the ...
