MENESES, Claudio  and  ORELLANA, Ariel. Using genomics to improve fruit quality. Biol. Res. [online]. 2013, vol.46, n.4, pp.347-352. ISSN 0716-9760.

New fruit varieties are needed to satisfy consumers, and the industry is facing new challenges in order to respond to these demands. The emergence of genomic tools is releasing information on polymorphisms that can be utilized to expedite breeding processes in species that are difficult to breed, given the long periods of time required to get new varieties. The present review describes the current stages of the ongoing efforts that are being taken to apply these technologies to obtain varieties with improved fruit quality in species of the family Rosaceae.

Keywords : Polymorphisms; Marker Assited Selection; Genomic Tools.
