The past decade has seen increased interest from the scientific community, and particularly plant biologists, in integrating metabolic approaches into research aimed at unraveling phenotypic diversity and its underlying genetic variation. Advances in plant metabolomics have enabled large-scale analyses that have identified qualitative and quantitative(More)
Recent advances in -omics technologies such as transcriptomics, metabolomics, and proteomics along with genotypic profiling have permitted dissection of the genetics of complex traits represented by molecular phenotypes in nonmodel species. To identify the genetic factors underlying variation in primary metabolism in potato (Solanum tuberosum), we have(More)
Many of the biochemical pathways for plant amino acid metabolism are known and, at least in model species, most of the genes encoding the biosynthetic enzymes have been identified. How the accumulation of amino acids is regulated is much less well understood and for this genetic analysis can be instrumental. In potato, the nutritional value of the tubers is(More)
