Marker application in apple breeding Fruitbreedomics WP1: Increasing efficiency of (marker-assisted) breeding (MAB) of new cultivars Pilot studies to check the practical application of MAB: Agroscope (CH) and University Bologna (I) Use of newly developed SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) markers instead of SSR (Simple Sequence Repaeat) markers
Early selection towards pyramided disease resistances and fruit quality Disease resistance Scab (V. inaequalis) Major resistance genes: Rvi6 (Vf), Rvi2 (Vh2) Mildew (P. leucotricha) Major resistance gene: Pl2 Fruit quality Crispness, texture, acidity Shelf life, storage (ethylene)
Pilot Studies: Crosses at Agroscope Parents were analysed with 20k SNP chip at Wageningen UR Mother Father Flowers Fruits Seeds ACW 11303 (Rvi6=Vf) ACW 18522 (Rvi6=Vf, Rvi2=Vh2) 2246 352 2227 ACW 13652 (Rvi6=Vf, Pl2) ACW 11567 (Rvi2=Vh2) 1370 323 2793
Steps Breeding strategy developed and crosses made (2011) New information on false positive reactions with some molecular markers (SSR marker present but gene not) led to adaptation of the strategy Sowing and screening for scab resistance (phenotypic), spring 2013, susceptible plants removed (except in subpopulations) Molecular selection with SNP’s (June 2013) Potting of selected plants for container field (July 2013) Phenotypic selection of the potted plants (October 2013) Grafting for selection field and for second scab screening in the glasshouse (second screening in 2015)
Crosses and glasshouse screening
Sampling for molecular analysis - No lyophilisation necessary - Deep well block, put the leaf rondelle, a plastic film and silica gel

MAB experiences • Plates of 6 x 4 pots allowed plant identification without labelling • Missing plants were replaced by living plants to fill up gaps in the plates (cost), laborious • Puncturing the leaves and expedition of the plates was efficient • Parents had to be checked first for the polymorphism of the planned SNP markers • The whole procedure was more time-consuming than expected • Costs are relatively low, DNA extraction is the most expensive, data point to low price • Close interaction with the company KASP - SNP Genotyping (LGC genomics) was required and successful
Analyses with LGC Genomics (UK) • Analysis of 2500 progeny plants (1250 from each progeny) financed by Fruitbreedomics • Analysis of remaining progeny plants financed by Agroscope (useful backup pool)
