Marker assisted selection and economic analysis of marker applications in Rosaceae crops
The use of markers in the research of crops is becoming more widely applicable. My research aims to examine the cost-benefit of applying marker assisted selection in Rosaceae crops such as sweet cherries and apples. In addition to this I am examining resistance within certain apple varieties to apple scab.
