Tomato mutants have been used in genetic studies and breeding for decades, yet only a few tomato mutants have been characterized at the molecular level. Similarly, a wealth of sequence information for tomato is now available but the functions of only a few genes are known. New developments - such as the use of saturated mutant populations, new methods for the detection of mutants and new sequence data - are bridging the gap between tomato genes and their functions.
