Jewels in the Genome
Project Director Dr. Amy Iezzoni has an ongoing feature column titled "Jewels in the Genome" in the Newsletter. An individual’s genome is the full complement of genetic information that it inherited from its parents. Within this vast repertoire of genetic information, individual genes are being discovered that control critical production and fruit quality traits. As these valuable rosaceous gene discoveries are made and put into breeding applications, we will describe them in this column as “Jewels in the Genome.”
Community Breeders' Feature Column
Project Co-Director Dr. Cameron Peace has an ongoing feature column titled “Community Breeders’ Page” in the quarterly Newsletter since August 2010. These articles focus on how to use DNA information in rosaceous crop improvement programs. Polished "jewels in the genome" that you can use in breeding are described and provided in an accessible format.
