Work packages

WP1: Genetic resources characterization and pre-breeding of sweet cherry cultivars

The main objective of this WP is to contribute to the development and implementation of new scientific methodologies.

WP2: Epigenetic analysis of selected sweet cherry cultivars using Methylation Sensitive Amplified Polymorphism (MSAP) markers

Epigenetic modifications have been reported to mediate environmentally induced phenotypic variation while epigenetic variance and the state of the art

WP3: Transcriptomic analyses with NGS technologies (RNA-Seq)

With the development of NGS technologies, transcripts levels for key genes have become a powerful tool for fine phenotyping.

WP4: Metabolomics analysis of sweet cherry cultivars

Αs the fruit is one of the most metabolite-rich organs of plants, it constitutes also an excellent model for metabolomics studies.

WP5: Proteomics analysis in sweet cherry cultivars

Constraints in the estimation of large-scale gene expression profiling, mRNA degradation or inefficiently translation, gene alternative splicing,

WP6: Bioinformatics

This work package will integrate data obtained in the previous packages and will apply bioinformatics tools and modeling approaches

WP7: Dissemination and Communication

We will produce a web-based Sweet Cherry Trait Information Portal (TIP) building on existing databases
