Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Localized the gene for blue plum skin

(Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) ) A new study published at the scientific journal Frontiers in Plant Science by CRAG and IRTA researchers reveals the gene that determines Japanese plum skin colour due to the presence or absence of antioxidant pigment anthocyanin. This work provides a highly efficient molecular marker for early selection of coloured and non-coloured fruits in plum breeding programmes, with potential applications in other Rosaceae species.
