Genetic structure based on EST–SSR: a putative tool for fruit color selection in Japanese plum (Prunus salicina L.) breeding programs


Prunus salicina is one of the most economically important stone fruits. However, there is scarce genetic information available, which makes it difficult to implement marker-assisted selection (MAS) in genetic improvement programs. Recently, next-generation sequencing has greatly enhanced breeding program strategies, generating information associated with… (More)
