Breeding of new apple varieties for high quality and resistance to biotic agents. Development and application of new techniques for phenotypic analysis (fire blight susceptibility and phenolic compounds) and study of genetic association.

Starting date: 01/01/2018 End date: 31/12/2020
Programme: Fruit production

Financing entities:

The objectives of this project are:

  1. Getting cider apple and table varieties of high quality fruit, resistance to fungi, bacterial fire and aspen aphid.
  2. Development of a methodology of in vitro evaluation of sensitivity / tolerance (S / T) to bacterial fire.
  3. Identification of markers linked to fruit quality, resistance to fungi and bacterial fire, by means of a genetic association study (Genome Wide Association Study) in a variety population of the SERIDA Germplasm Bank.
  4. Application and verification of the efficacy of new molecular markers determined in the selection of high interest genotypes.
