Unraveling the genomic processes at play during variety diversification is of fundamental interest for understanding evolution, but also of applied interest in crop science. It can indeed provide knowledge on the genetic bases of traits for crop improvement and germplasm diversity management. Apple is one of the most important fruit crops in temperate(More)
Scab is one of the major fungal diseases infecting pear trees, causing the greatest economic losses. Identifying and pyramiding scab resistance factors should help in breeding new resistant pear cultivars. We have identified and mapped two new pear resistance loci against the fungal pathogen Venturia pirina. The first locus, mapped both as a major gene and(More)
