Data from: Crop-to-wild gene flow and spatial genetic structure in the closest wild relatives of the cultivated apple

Amandine Cornille, Pierre Gladieux & Tatiana Giraud
Crop-to-wild gene flow have important evolutionary and ecological consequences and require careful consideration in conservation programs for wild genetic resources of potential use in breeding programs and in assessments of the risk of transgene escape into natural ecosystems. Using 26 microsatellites and a set of 1181 trees, we investigated the extent of introgression from the cultivated apple, Malus domestica, to its three closest wild relatives, M. sylvestris in Europe, M. orientalis in the Caucasus and...
