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 ...
Genotyping by Sequencing in Almond: SNP Discovery, Linkage Mapping, and Marker Design
In crop plant genetics, linkage maps provide the basis for the mapping of loci that affect important traits and for the selection of markers to be applied in crop improvement. In outcrossing species ...
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 ...
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 ...
