Publication: Haplotyping the Vitis collinear core genome with rhAmpSeq improves marker transferability in a diverse genus

Abstract: Transferable DNA markers are essential for breeding and genetics. Grapevine (Vitis) breeders utilize disease resistance alleles from congeneric species ~20 million years divergent, but existing Vitis marker platforms have cross-species transfer rates as low as 2%. Here, we apply a marker strategy targeting the inferred Vitis core genome. Incorporating... [Read More]
