A Chinese team takes a look at genome sequences for hundreds of wild or cultivated peach accessions to explore domestication-related changes in the plant's traits and search for potential markers to further improve Prunus persica. After sequencing 215 improved peach cultivars, 213 landraces, and 52 wild relative plants, the researchers identified nearly 5 million high-quality SNPs, including new and known quantitative trait loci.
