A high quality genome sequence of apple is published in this week's Nature Genetics by an international team of scientists, among which researchers of Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands. The publication of the sequence facilitates faster and more targeted breeding of new apple varieties with increased disease resistance, improved production traits, and better fruit quality. With this the results support a more sustainable production of apple fruit, both from an environmental and a financial perspective.
