Probing the molecular basis of fruit firmness in southern highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum hybrid) through RNA sequencing

Lena Wilson & Hamid Ashrafi
Blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) benefit from increased fruit firmness because of consumer preference and machine harvestability. However, the genetic component of fruit texture and skin thickness and their relationship to firmness have yet to be deciphered. This study used bulked segregant RNA-seq (BSR-seq) for differential gene expression analysis. Previously an F1 population of a cross between firm-fruited southern highbush cv. 'Reveille' and soft-fruited cv. 'Arlen' was developed in our laboratory. The total RNA of the...
