The high-quality draft genome of peach (Prunus persica) identifies unique patterns of genetic diversity, domestication and genome evolution
Rosaceae is the most important fruit-producing clade, and its key commercially relevant genera (Fragaria, Rosa, Rubus and Prunus) show broadly diverse growth habits, fruit types and compact diploidExpand

Characterization of microsatellite markers in peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch]
Abstract Microsatellites have emerged as an important system of molecular markers. We evaluated the potential of microsatellites for use in genetic studies of peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch].Expand

Sequencing and annotation of the evergrowing locus in peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] reveals a cluster of six MADS-box transcription factors as candidate genes for regulation of terminal bud
Buds are specialized structures that protect fragile meristematic regions during dormancy and are part of the mechanism that plants use to survive unfavorable environmental conditions such as lowExpand
