Population genomics of wild Asian apricot trees

Sustainable fruit production relies on the introduction of genetic resistance from wild to cultivated germplasm. For this purpose, we collected wild apricot populations presenting a high level of phenotypic diversity. SWAG aims at drawing a complete and comprehensive dataset of intra-specific polymorphisms among a set of 300 wild apricot and relative species, for population genomics of apricot domestication and additionally for Genome Wide Association with resistance to sharka in apricot.
