I would like to find out morphological markers of Fragaria
ananassa (2n=8x=56), such as red seedling clour a trait that is
apparently controlled by a single dominant gene in apples eg. cv
Baskatong or white fruit character in Fragaria vesca (2n=2x=14) which is
homozygous recessive in the white fruited F.vesca. I would like to use
them in my crosses and be able to recognise the progeny via the apperence
or non-appearence of the markers.
I would be glad to hear from you and would acknowladge of your expetise.
I am also interested in the molecular markers of the F. ananassa.
