  7. 7. VEGEPOLYS - MAB services Principle and goals Principle: 1-For a given species, some plants present 1 or several biological characters relevant for the selection. 2-Each character can be linked to a gene. 3-This gene is labelled by a specific molecular marker.  So we can detect the presence or not of a character in all plants of this species assisted by a marker, it is the MAB principle. Main goals of the MAB:  The MAB can be used to select hybrids carrying genes of interest and to compile these genes to create a new genitor Fruitbreedomics 2014-02-11, vegepolys presentation
  8. 8. VEGEPOLYS - MAB services transfer of genetic knowledge for fruit trees breeders A list of fruit trees which have 1 or several genes linked to 1 or several biological characters of interest will be done by the researchers of Fruitbreedomics and previous projects.  So the MAB fruitbreedomics services allow to detect the genes inherited from these parent trees into hybrids.
