“Apple is being increasingly considered as a model for fruit development studies, although many gaps still exist in apple research.”
The TranscrApple project has been designed to fill these gaps.
TRANSCRIPTIONAL AND POST-TRANSCRIPTIONAL REGULATION OF APPLE FRUIT DEVELOPMENT
In the orchard
Most of the project is developed in experimental orchards, on selected trees of the cultivar Golden Delicious (clone B).
Inside the fruit
The Transcrapple project aims at looking inside the fruit up to the cellular level. Its developmental physiology is our focus.
