A genotyping by sequencing (GbS) approach is reported in blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum L.) using a de novo read assembly method developed because of the current absence of a reference genome sequence for this species. A new approach to single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotype calling is described, where individual genotypes for a large number of SNPs were(More)
Cane splitting, a normal feature of raspberry growth, can lead to plant infestation by cane midge followed by fungal infection, with losses in yield of up to 50 % if left untreated. The extent of splitting in the Latham × Glen Moy reference mapping population was assessed over six years and in three environments and quantitative trait loci (QTL) were(More)
BACKGROUND It has been well established that theoretical kernel for recently surging genome-wide association study (GWAS) is statistical inference of linkage disequilibrium (LD) between a tested genetic marker and a putative locus affecting a disease trait. However, LD analysis is vulnerable to several confounding factors of which population stratification(More)
