Rosaceae geneticists and molecular biologists, whether focusing on ornamental, fruit crops or trees grown for their timber, have very similar challenges, which are to create varieties that can compete in a globalized market. Rosaceae breeders’ objectives are to improve the product quality (e.g. improved fruit quality) and productivity (e.g. improved phenology).
