The genome of the domesticated apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.)
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.
A High Quality Draft Consensus Sequence of the Genome of a Heterozygous Grapevine Variety
A high quality draft genome sequence of a cultivated clone of V. vinifera Pinot Noir provides candidate genes implicated in traits relevant to grapevine cultivation, such as those influencing wine quality, via secondary metabolites, and those connected with the extreme susceptibility of grape to pathogens.
The Barley Mlo Gene: A Novel Control Element of Plant Pathogen Resistance
A PCR–based approach for isolating pathogen resistance genes from potato with potential for wide application in plants
The results indicate that plant resistance genes that are effective against nematodes, fungi andviruses and bacteria may be isolated based on common sequence motifs and PCR methodology.
On the origin and domestication history of Barley (Hordeum vulgare).
The results provided support for the hypothesis that the Israel-Jordan area is the region in which barley was brought into culture and the Himalayas can be considered a region of domesticated barley diversification.
SITE OF EINKORN WHEAT DOMESTICATION IDENTIFIED BY DNA FINGERPRINTING
Phylogenetic analysis that was based on the allelic frequency at 288 amplified fragment length polymorphism molecular marker loci indicates that a wild group of Triticum monococcum boeoticum lines from the Karacadag mountains is the likely progenitor of cultivated einkorn varieties.

A better understanding of the genetic differences between wild grasses and domesticated crops adds important facets to the continuing debate on the origin of Western agriculture and the societies to which it gave rise.
The high-quality draft genome of peach (Prunus persica) identifies unique patterns of genetic diversity, domestication and genome evolution
Comparisons showed that peach has not undergone recent whole-genome duplication, and even though the ancestral triplicated blocks in peach are fragmentary compared to those in grape, all seven paleosets of paralogs from the putative paleoancestor are detectable.
The R1 gene for potato resistance to late blight (Phytophthora infestans) belongs to the leucine zipper/NBS/LRR class of plant resistance genes.
It is shown that R1, the first gene for resistance to late blight, is cloned by combining positional cloning with a candidate gene approach, and is located within a hot spot for pathogen resistance on potato chromosome V.

Systematic analysis of protein interactions of 3-aa loop extension (TALE) homeodomain proteins, fundamental regulators of plant meristem function and leaf development, revealed a highly connected, complex network that includes nine members of Arabidopsis thaliana ovate family proteins (AtOFPs), a plant-specific protein family, indicating a close functional connection to TALE homeodome proteins.
