Abstract The Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR, https://www.rosaceae.org) is an integrated web-based community database resource providing access to publicly available genomics, genetics and breeding data and data-mining tools to facilitate basic, translational and applied research in Rosaceae. The volume of data in GDR has increased greatly over the last 5 years. The GDR now houses multiple versions of whole genome assembly and annotation data from 14 species, made available by recent advances…

PlantTribes2 is presented, a scalable, easily accessible, highly customizable, and broadly applicable gene family analysis framework with multiple entry points including user provided data that can be readily adapted for use with genomic and transcriptomic data from any kind of organism.

GDS: A Genomic Database for Strawberries (Fragaria spp.)

Strawberry species (Fragaria spp.) are known as the “queen of fruits” and are cultivated around the world. Over the past few years, eight strawberry genome sequences have been released. The reuse of

Whole-genome sequence and methylome profiling of the almond (Prunus dulcis [Mill.] D.A.Webb) cultivar ‘Nonpareil’

This report provides the complete methylome of several key almond tissues, including leaf, flower, endocarp, mesOCarp, fruit skin, and seed coat, and Comparisons between methylation profiles in these tissues revealed differences in genome-wide weighted percent methylation and chromosome-level methylation enrichment.

RIGD: A Database for Intronless Genes in the Rosaceae

The Rosaceae Intronless Genes Database (RIGD) is constructed, a user-friendly web interface to explore and collect information on intronless genes from different plants and Blast and comparative analyses are provided through this online database.

Whole-genome sequence and methylome profiling of the almond [Prunus dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb] cultivar ‘Nonpareil’

The whole-genome assembly for ‘Nonpareil’ is not currently available despite its economic importance and use in almond breeding worldwide, and the complete methylome of several almond tissues is provided, including leaf, flower, endocarp, mesOCarp, exocarp and seed coat.

Prunus genetics and applications after de novo genome sequencing: achievements and prospects

Current and ongoing work that leverages whole-genome sequences to identify and characterize genes controlling 22 agronomically important Prunus traits, including phenology, fruit quality, allergens, disease resistance, tree architecture, and self-incompatibility is summarized.

The Genome-Wide Analysis of RALF-Like Genes in Strawberry (Wild and Cultivated) and Five Other Plant Species (Rosaceae)

This research identifies 124 RALF-like genes from seven Rosaceae species, and 39 genes from Arabidopsis, totally 163 genes, divided into four clades according to the phylogenetic analysis, which includes 45 mature RalF genes fromRosaceae species.



The Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR): year 10 update

The Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR) has been enhanced with new genomic, genetic and breeding data, and improved functionality, to enable selection comparison and assistance with breeding decision making.

Genome structure of Rosa multiflora, a wild ancestor of cultivated roses

The draft genome sequence of a wild rose was determined using Illumina MiSeq and HiSeq platforms and revealed a large number of genes for a diploid plant, which may reflect heterogeneity of the genome originating from self-incompatibility in R. multiflora.

Re-annotation of the woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca) genome

Using the RNA-Seq transcriptome sequences from 25 diverse tissue types, the re-annotation pipeline improved existing annotations by increasing the annotation accuracy based on extensive transcriptome data.

Whole genome comparisons of Fragaria, Prunus and Malus reveal different modes of evolution between Rosaceous subfamilies

The analysis shows that different modes of evolution may have played major roles in different subfamilies of Rosaceae, and reconstructs a hypothetical ancestral genome for the Rosaceae 7 composed of nine chromosomes and proposes the evolutionary steps from the ancestral genome to the extant Fragaria, Prunus and Malus genomes.

The Rosa genome provides new insights into the domestication of modern roses

The rose whole-genome sequencing and assembly and resequencing of major genotypes that contributed to rose domestication and a model of interconnected regulation of scent and flower color are proposed, providing a foundation for understanding the mechanisms governing rose traits.
