  • Genomics Assisted Ancestry Deconvolution in Grape 

    Sawler, Jason, Bruce Reisch, Mallikarjuna K. Aradhya, Bernard Prins, et al. 2013. "Genomics Assisted Ancestry Deconvolution in Grape." Plos One 8(11): 80791-e80791.
    The genus Vitis (the grapevine) is a group of highly diverse, diploid woody perennial vines consisting of approximately 60 species from across the northern hemisphere. It is the world's most valuable horticultural crop ...
  • Improving fruit and wine: what does genomics have to offer? 

    Myles, Sean. 2013. "Improving fruit and wine: what does genomics have to offer?." Trends in Genetics 29(4): 190-196.
    Will we still be drinking wines made from Pinot Noir and eating McIntosh apples in the 23rd century? Elite grape and apple cultivars, vegetatively propagated for centuries, are highly susceptible to evolving pathogens. In ...
  • Genetic diversity and population structure assessed by SSR and SNP markers in a large germplasm collection of grape 

    Emanuelli, Francesco, Silvia Lorenzi, Lukasz Grzeskowiak, Valentina Catalano, et al. 2013. "Genetic diversity and population structure assessed by SSR and SNP markers in a large germplasm collection of grape." Bmc Plant Biology 13: 39-39.
    Background: The economic importance of grapevine has driven significant efforts in genomics to accelerate the exploitation of Vitis resources for development of new cultivars. However, although a large number of clonally ...
  • Vitis Phylogenomics: Hybridization Intensities from a SNP Array Outperform Genotype Calls 

    Miller, Allison J., Naim Matasci, Heidi Schwaninger, Mallikarjuna K. Aradhya, et al. 2013. "Vitis Phylogenomics: Hybridization Intensities from a SNP Array Outperform Genotype Calls." Plos One 8(11): 78680-e78680.
    Understanding relationships among species is a fundamental goal of evolutionary biology. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified through next generation sequencing and related technologies enable phylogeny ...
