New possible traits for crosses 2014 • Self-thinning • Low carb (low fructose, low sorbitol)
Apple genotypes described by Agroscope Traits need to be confirmed with new know-how on the markers and false positive signals
Low allergenic apples ‘Some people who are allergic may simply say they don’t like apples, since they’ve a very mild reaction after eating them,’ Eric van de Weg, plant scientist at Wageningen University in the Netherlands told Fresh Plaza.

Different approaches towards low allergenic apples Dr. Alessandro Botton, a plant physiologist at the Department of Agronomy, Food, Natural Resources, Animals and Environment in the University of Padua worked as a plant physiologist on the ISAFRUIT project to unravel the apple's genetic markers. Botton is currently working on the AGER Project to identify naturally occurring hypoallergenic proteins in order to find a way to breed different apple varieties into a hypo-allergenic variety of apples.

Resistance to fire blight from Mr5 (ETH and JKI) • Resistance gene of Mr5 has been isolated and function proved in transgenic Gala Broggini et al. (2014) Engineering fire blight resistance into the apple cultivar 'Gala' using the FB_MR5 CC-NBS-LRR resistance gene of Malus × robusta 5. Plant Biotechnology Journal accepted Transgenic Gala lines
Introduction of fire blight resistance from Mr5 using the fast breeding approach (JKI) 2011 PinovaT1190 x 2012 (F2) 2013 (F3) 2014 (F4) 12120 (Idared x Mr5) x 13103 Golden Del. x Fuji 14100 (16 seedlings) MAS: with markers surrounding the fire blight resistance gene FB_MR5
Conclusions Pyramiding a broad range of disease resistance genes and factors is supposed to be promising in respect of durability of the resistance. To integrate scab, mildew and fire blight resistances in the same genotype is an added value provided a high fruit quality and productivity can be achieved. Further breeding objectives such as low chilling, low allergenic, high flavor and eventually self-thinning and health/nutritional aspects were or will be considered.
