Functional Genomics in Rose

  • Fabrice Foucher
Part of the Plant Genetics and Genomics: Crops and Models book series (PGG, volume 6)

Rose is in the infancy of genomics as the genome sequence is not available and only few tools have been developed. Here, we will present all the tools (cDNA libraries, EST, databases, microarrays) that have been developed and their uses in molecular approaches to study different ornamental traits as scent, color, flower development and senescence.
