Aligning male and female linkage maps of apple (Malus pumila Mill.) using multi-allelic markers
The high marker density and large number of mapped codominant RFLPs and some microsatellite markers make this map an ideal reference map for use in other progenies also and a valuable tool for the mapping of quantitative trait loci.
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.
Venturia inaequalis Resistance in Apple
The advances of the past 10 years due to new genetic tools are considered and the complex genetic of scab resistance in Malus is viewed in the context of single resistance genes, QTLs and functional interactions at molecular level.
Apple contains receptor-like genes homologous to the Cladosporium fulvum resistance gene family of tomato with a cluster of genes cosegregating with Vf apple scab resistance.

The identification of a cluster of receptor-like genes with homology to the Cladosporium fulvum resistance gene family of tomato on bacterial artificial chromosome clones derived from the Vf scab resistance locus is reported.
Quantitative genetic analysis and comparison of physical and sensory descriptors relating to fruit flesh firmness in apple (Malus pumila Mill.)
The use of sensory assessment proved valuable in detecting QTLs representing different attributes of fruit texture, and the possibility of interaction between significant Q TLs for fruit texture and other strongly selected traits such as scab resistance and fruit acidity is addressed.
Comparison of the genetic determinism of two key phenological traits, flowering and maturity dates, in three Prunus species: peach, apricot and sweet cherry
The results provide a basis for the identification of genes involved in flowering and maturity dates that could be used to develop cultivar ideotypes adapted to future climatic conditions.

The Italian apple germplasm represents an important source of genetic diversity which can be used to optimize the efficiency of genome-wide association studies aimed at identifying the genomic regions controlling major horticultural traits.
Development of a new SSR-based linkage map in apricot and analysis of synteny with existing Prunus maps
The Peach v2.0 release: high-resolution linkage mapping and deep resequencing improve chromosome-scale assembly and contiguity
The improved high quality peach genome assembly (Peach v2.0) represents a valuable tool for the analysis of the genetic diversity, domestication, and as a vehicle for genetic improvement of peach and related Prunus species.
Development of reliable PCR markers for the selection of the Vf gene conferring scab resistance in apple
Two sequence characterized amplified regions (SCAR) markers have been obtained from previously described random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers, and the usefulness of these and other SCAR markers will be discussed in relation to combining the traditional phenotypic selection with MAS.
