Modern potato breeding requires over 100,000 seedlings per new variety. Main reasons are (1) the increasing number of traits that have to be combined in this tetraploid vegetatively propagated crop, and (2) an increasing number of traits (e.g., resistance to biotic stress) originates from wild species. Pre-breeding by introgression or induced translocation is an expensive way of transferring single traits (such as R-genes, coding for resistance to biotic stress) to the cultivated plant. The… 

Cisgenesis: an important sub-invention for traditional plant breeding companies

TLDR
It is shown that not only transgenes but also cisgenes and intragenes are available, representing the breeders gene pool, and indicates the need for reconsideration of GM Directives.

Cisgenesis and Intragenesis as New Strategies for Crop Improvement

TLDR
In this chapter, the concepts of cis/intragenesis and the prerequisites for the development of transgenic and intragenic plants are elaborated and strategies for marker gene removal after selection of transformants are discussed based on the few recent reports from various plant species.

Biotechnological Approaches: Gene Overexpression, Gene Silencing, and Genome Editing to Control Fungal and Oomycete Diseases in Grapevine

TLDR
The most recent biotechnological strategies optimized and applied on Vitis species, aimed at reducing their susceptibility to the most harmful fungal and oomycetes diseases are summarized.

Advances and outlook of horticultural bioengineering

A Branch of modern biotechnology for creating unique relevant genotypes is bioengineering that harnesses a spectrum of plant genome modification technologies. The study aimed to analyse the current

The development of a cisgenic apple plant.

Molecular characterization of cisgenic lines of apple 'Gala' carrying the Rvi6 scab resistance gene.

TLDR
Three cisgenic lines were analysed to assess copy number, integration site, expression level and resistance to apple scab, and it was impossible to determine the copy number and TDNA integration site of these lines.

Apple ( Malus spp.) Breeding: Present and Future

TLDR
The aim in apple breeding was the combination of different kinds of resistance and good fruit quality to produce dessert cultivars and cultivars for processing, and the recent molecular genetic tool CRISPR/Cas9 to edit and correct the genome.

Apple Breeding: Present and Future

Somatic cell genetics and its application in potato breeding.

TLDR
The main topics include the establishment and maintenance of in vitro cultures, micropropagation, shoot and meristem culture, somatic embryogenesis, production of micro- and mini-tubers and conservation of germplasm, and the potential of somatic cell genetics for the future improvement of potato.

Development of late blight resistant potatoes by cisgene stacking

TLDR
This study developed a marker-free transformation pipeline to select potato plants functionally expressing a stack of late blight R genes, providing an important tool for the successful deployment of R genes in agriculture and contributes to the production of potentially durable late blight resistant potatoes.

A transformation method for obtaining marker-free plants of a cross-pollinating and vegetatively propagated crop

TLDR
This system does not require genetic segregation or site-specific DNA-deletion systems to remove marker genes, and may provide a reliable and efficient tool for generating transgenic plants for commercial use, especially in vegetatively propagated species like potato and cassava.

Effective production of marker-free transgenic strawberry plants using inducible site-specific recombination and a bifunctional selectable marker gene.

TLDR
The development of an effective transformation system for generating marker-free transgenic plants, without the need for repeated transformation or sexual crossing is described.

Global impact of mutation-derived varieties

TLDR
Induced mutations will continue to have an increasing role in creating crop varieties with traits such as modified oil, protein and starch quality, enhanced uptake of specific metals, deeper rooting system, and resistance to drought, diseases and salinity as a major component of the environmentally sustainable agriculture.

The HcrVf2 gene from a wild apple confers scab resistance to a transgenic cultivated variety.

TLDR
The results show that direct gene transfer between cross-compatible species can be viable when the use of backcrosses to introduce resistance genes from wild species cannot exactly reconstitute the heterozygous genotype of clonally propagated cultivars.

Characterization of wheat-alien translocations conferring resistance to diseases and pests: current status

TLDR
The present review summarizes the available data on wheat-alien transfers conferring resistance to diseases and pests and should be useful for further directed chromosome engineering aimed at producing superior germplasm.

TLDR
A case arguing for an updating and refinement of these rules in order to place cisgenic GM-crops in another class of GM-plants as has been done in the past with (induced) mutation breeding and the use of protoplast fusion between crossable species is presented.
