We have identified 19 QTLs for rachis architecture, a key and complex trait for grapevine production. Fifty out of 1,173 genes underlying these QTLs are candidates to be further explored. In the table grape industry, the rachis architecture has economic and management implications. Therefore, understanding the genetics of this trait is key for its breeding.(More)
The deployment in common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) of arcelin-based bruchid resistance could help reduce post-harvest storage losses to the Mexican bean weevil [(Zabrotes subfasciatus (Boheman)]. Arcelin is a member of the arcelin-phytohemagglutinin-alpha-amylase inhibitor (APA) family of seed proteins, which has been extensively studied but not widely(More)
Highly polymorphic markers such as simple sequence repeats (SSRs) or microsatellites are very useful for genetic mapping. In this study novel SSRs were identified in BAC-end sequences (BES) from non-contigged, non-overlapping bacterial artificial clones (BACs) in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). These so called "singleton" BACs were from the G19833(More)
