In-depth characterization of the genetic diversity and population structure of wild relatives is of paramount importance for genetic improvement and biodiversity conservation, and is particularly crucial when the wild relatives of crops are endangered. In this study, we sampled the Alpine plum (Briançon apricot) Prunus brigantina Vill. across its natural distribution in the French Alps, where its populations are severely fragmented and its population size strongly impacted by humans. We… Expand

Population genomics of apricots unravels domestication history and adaptive events
Different genomic regions show footprints of selection in European and Chinese cultivated apricots, despite convergent phenotypic traits, with predicted functions in both groups involved in the perennial life cycle, fruit quality and disease resistance. Expand


Genetic diversity and relationships among Prunus cerasifera (cherry plum) clones
This study considers the genetic relationships among different P. cerasifera clones, including horticultural cultivars, and shows important differences between some clones, but most of the samples are grouped. Expand
Diversification of almonds, peaches, plums and cherries - molecular systematics and biogeographic history of Prunus (Rosaceae).
The phylogeny of Prunus is examined, including an expanded sampling of species from tropical regions in Southeast Asia and the Americas, using sequences from four plastid markers and the nuclear ribosomal ITS region and molecular dating estimates suggest that the crown clade that includes the temperate deciduous crop species is older than the one that including the tropical evergreen species.

Genetic characterization of worldwide Prunus domestica (plum) germplasm using sequence-based genotyping
Overall, the cultivated plums harbored a low level of genetic diversity, suggestive of repeated inbreeding from a small number of founder plants, and may have been a product of inter-specific cross breeding and artificial selection by early agrarian Eurasian societies. Expand
New insights into the history of domesticated and wild apricots and its contribution to Plum pox virus resistance
Central Asian native apricots exhibited genetic subdivision and high frequency of resistance to sharka, confirming an origin in this region and contributing to the understanding of the domestication history of cultivated apricot and point to valuable genetic diversity in the extant genetic resources of wild apricOTS.

Interspecific introgression and natural selection in the evolution of Japanese apricot (Prunus mume)
Light is shed on the complicated nature of adaptive evolution in a tree crop that has undergone interspecific exchange of genome fragments with natural/artificial selection. Expand
Postglacial recolonization history of the European crabapple (Malus sylvestris Mill.), a wild contributor to the domesticated apple
This work used a combination of genetic data and ecological niche models to investigate the historical patterns of biogeographic range expansion of a wild fruit tree, the European crabapple (Malus sylvestris), a wild contributor to the domesticated apple. Expand
Phylogenetics of Eurasian plums, Prunus L. section Prunus (Rosaceae), according to coding and non-coding chloroplast DNA sequences
The section Prunus is resolved into four well-supported clades, which correspond to the geographical distribution of the species, and the hexaploid species could not be resolved into distinct species clades but formed a well- supported group separate from the tetraploids species, highlighting the distinct evolutionary origins of the different polyploid groups.

Gene flow in Prunus species in the context of novel trait risk assessment.
The results of this review suggest that the commercialization of one GM Prunus species can create coexistence issues for commercial non-GM Prinus production and serve as a resource for environmental risk assessment related to pollen mediated gene flow and the release of transgenicPrunus. Expand
The complex evolutionary history of apricots: Species divergence, gene flow and multiple domestication events
The inferred history of wild apricot species divergence and domestication history across Eurasia is inferred, revealing at least three domestication events that gave rise to European, Southern Central Asian and Chinese cultivated apricots, with ancient gene flow among them. Expand
Crop‐to‐wild gene flow and spatial genetic structure in the closest wild relatives of the cultivated apple
High potential for crop‐to‐wild gene flow in apples needs to be considered in the implementation of in situ and ex situ actions for the conservation of wild apple genetic resources potentially useful to plant breeding. Expand
