13. Some serious science: full apple genome and related links
Have to close the links in Firefox I opened already few days ago to study/read. Save them here to be able to print and re-explore later this week / this months, realised that I have to catch up also on terminology of the most recent genetics & genome sequencing.
Well, no surprise that there are extensive worldwide joint studies on the apple (and other Rosaceae) genomes. Great that the full sequencing is done. Read more.
And there was/is a press-version of two A4 pages with some slightly easier-language summary — add the link also under the screenshot.
And as long as I want to close all genome-related links for the coming few days — here is the database I opened but did not yet explore.
Well, I am probably getting old — but looking at the 19th / early 20th century apple drawings gives somewhat more joy and satisfaction than reading on top-science sequencing. Went to explore the latter link and suddenly have a feeling that it is top-science that is far from every-day life of those who grow and consume the apples…
