Genetic characterisation of Botrytis cinerea populations in Chile
TLDR
Analysis of isolates collected in Chile from grapes, tomato, kiwifruit and blueberry revealed the existence of genetic differentiation in the authors' sample between isolates from the different host plants, and PCR-RFLP markers showed that isolates sampled from grapes and tomato were genetically differentiated.
Molecular, genetic and transcriptional evidence for a role of VvAGL11 in stenospermocarpic seedlessness in grapevine
TLDR
It is proposed that VvAGL11 is the major functional candidate gene for seedlessness, and experimental evidence suggesting that the seedless phenotype might be caused by variations in its promoter region.
Gene pool classification of common bean landraces from Chile based on RAPD and morphological data
TLDR
It was concluded that by RAPD, Chilean landraces could be readily classified into the Andeana nd Mesoamericang ene pools and Morphological traits were less effective at classification.
Assessment of genetic diversity patterns in Chilean quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) germplasm using multiplex fluorescent microsatellite markers
TLDR
The objective of this study was to characterize and quantify the genetic diversity within 28 Altiplano and 31 coastal Chilean accessions of quinoa using microsatellite markers and provides the quinoa scientific community with a new set of easy to use and highly informative genetic markers.
Construction of High Density Sweet Cherry (Prunus avium L.) Linkage Maps Using Microsatellite Markers and SNPs Detected by Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS)
TLDR
These new high density linkage maps provide valuable information on the sweet cherry genome, and serve as the basis for identification of QTLs and genes relevant for the breeding of the species.
Identification of two putative reference genes from grapevine suitable for gene expression analysis in berry and related tissues derived from RNA-Seq data
TLDR
The grapevine genes VvAIG1 or VvTCPB or both are proposed as a reference tool to normalize RNA expression in qPCR assays or other quantitative method intended to measure gene expression in berries and other tissues of this fruit crop, sampled at different developmental stages and physiological conditions.
Heritability and identification of QTLs and underlying candidate genes associated with the architecture of the grapevine cluster (Vitis vinifera L.)
TLDR
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) detected indicate that these traits and their GA3 responsiveness have a clear genetic basis and are good candidates to participate in the genetic determination of the cluster architecture.
Identification of a minimal microsatellite marker panel for the fingerprinting of peach and nectarine cultivars
TLDR
A Neighbor-Joining dendrogram showed that, with few exceptions, peaches and nectarines clustered separately, and the results are the basis for the development of a fingerprinting protocol for the unequivocal identification of most of the peach and nectarine cultivars officially registered in Chile.
New Stable QTLs for Berry Firmness in Table Grapes
TLDR
This study shows that berry firmness has a clear genetic basis and could be used for the development of markers to assist table grape breeding.
