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 pertinent research shows that epigenetic variation can be heritable and play a notable evolutionary role. This WP is devoted into further elucidating phenotypic diversity and plasticity by developing the links between genetics, phenology and epigenetics in sweet cherry.
