Research Topic: Genomic and phylogenetic analysis of strawberry species

Investigation of the genome composition and phylogeny of species with the Fragaria (strawberry) genus. Genome-wide phylogenetic analyses were performed based on data collected from next generation sequencing and the Affymetrix SNP array. On going projects include the quality improvement of genome assembly for the diploid species F. iinumae, and the genome sequencing and assembly of the octoploid strawberry.
