Flower color is one of the most important traits of ornamental roses. Anthocyanins are the major secondary metabolites responsible for the red and pink colors found among rose cultivars. Color varies depending on the combination of particular anthocyanins, their co-factors and their concentrations. Several genetic investigations have indicated that variation in flower color is dependent on monogenic factors and quantitative trait loci (QTL). Here, we analyze quantitative variation of total… CONTINUE READING
