The genome of the domesticated apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.)
TLDR
It is shown that a relatively recent (>50 million years ago) genome-wide duplication has resulted in the transition from nine ancestral chromosomes to 17 chromosomes in the Pyreae, which partly support the monophyly of the ancestral paleohexaploidy of eudicots.
Microsatellite markers spanning the apple (Malus x domestica Borkh.) genome
TLDR
The increased coverage of theapple genome with SSRs allowed the selection of a set of 86 reliable, highly polymorphic, and overall the apple genome well-scattered SSRs, which are generally more polymorphic than sequences containing trinucleotide repeats.
High-quality de novo assembly of the apple genome and methylome dynamics of early fruit development
TLDR
High-quality de novo assembly of the apple genome is produced and genome-wide DNA methylation data suggest that epigenetic marks may contribute to agronomically relevant aspects, such as apple fruit development.
Revision of the nomenclature of the differential host-pathogen interactions of Venturia inaequalis and Malus.
TLDR
A set of universally available, differentially resistant hosts is described, which will be followed by a set of defined pathogen races at a later stage.
Quantitative genetic analysis and comparison of physical and sensory descriptors relating to fruit flesh firmness in apple (Malus pumila Mill.)
TLDR
The use of sensory assessment proved valuable in detecting QTLs representing different attributes of fruit texture, and the possibility of interaction between significant Q TLs for fruit texture and other strongly selected traits such as scab resistance and fruit acidity is addressed.
Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) Analysis Reveals Both Broad-Spectrum and Isolate-Specific QTL for Scab Resistance in an Apple Progeny Challenged with Eight Isolates of Venturia inaequalis.
TLDR
A better understanding is contributed of the genetic basis of the V. inaequalis-Malus x domestica interaction as new, more durable, scab resistance genes are needed in apple breeding programs.
Mapping of qualitative and quantitative phenotypic traits in Rosa using AFLP markers
TLDR
It appears that thorn quantity is controlled by a major and a minor QTL which are located on the same linkage group at 36.5 and 3.2 cM from the single seasonal-blooming gene, respectively.
Identification of a major QTL together with several minor additive or epistatic QTLs for resistance to fire blight in apple in two related progenies
TLDR
A quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis in two F1 progenies derived from crosses between the cultivars Fiesta and either Discovery or Prima confirms the complex polygenic nature of resistance to fire blight in the progenie studied and reveals the existence of a major QTL on LG7 that is stable in two distinct genetic backgrounds.
Resistance gene analogues identified through the NBS-profiling method map close to major genes and QTL for disease resistance in apple
TLDR
This study demonstrates the efficiency of the NBS-profiling method for generating RGA markers for resistance loci in apple and several markers could become efficient tools for marker-assisted selection once converted into breeder-friendly markers.
Utilization of pedigree information to estimate genetic parameters from large unbalanced data sets in apple
TLDR
The software REML VCE took into account the complex pedigree of the French apple-breeding population, thanks to the restricted maximum likelihood procedure combined with the construction of the entire relationship matrix between hybrids planted in the field and their ancestors.
