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

Sequence and genetic map of Meloidogyne hapla: A compact nematode genome for plant parasitism
We have established Meloidogyne hapla as a tractable model plant-parasitic nematode amenable to forward and reverse genetics, and we present a complete genome sequence. At 54 Mbp, M. hapla representsExpand

Development and Evaluation of a 9K SNP Array for Peach by Internationally Coordinated SNP Detection and Validation in Breeding Germplasm
Although a large number of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers covering the entire genome are needed to enable molecular breeding efforts such as genome wide association studies, fineExpand

Construction of a genetic linkage map and identification of AFLP markers for resistance to root-knot nematodes in peach rootstocks.
A genetic linkage map for peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) rootstocks has been constructed using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers in 55 F2 individuals derived from the crossExpand

Epigenomic Consequences of Immortalized Plant Cell Suspension Culture
Plant cells grown in culture exhibit genetic and epigenetic instability. Using a combination of chromatin immunoprecipitation and DNA methylation profiling on tiling microarrays, we have mapped theExpand

Development of a genetic linkage map and identification of homologous linkage groups in sweetpotato using multiple-dose AFLP markers
Sweetpotato genomic research is minimal compared to most other major crops despite its worldwide importance as a food crop. The development of a genetic linkage map in sweetpotato will provideExpand
