A research team has provided a comprehensive overview of the applications of omics technologies in Rosaceae plants. The study highlights significant advancements in genome sequencing, transcriptome, proteomics, and metabolomics, shedding light on the genetic regulatory mechanisms underlying crucial traits such as flower color, fragrance, stress tolerance, and fruit quality. This research is invaluable for molecular breeding and improving economic traits in Rosaceae plants, potentially leading to the rapid cultivation of new varieties and germplasm.

The Rosaceae family, with its diverse species and economic importance, is a focus of breeding efforts aimed at enhancing stress tolerance and ornamental and fruit qualities. Understanding the genetic basis of traits like flower color and fruit quality is essential for both consumer appeal and health benefits. Despite challenges such as climate change-induced stresses, omics technologies, especially genomics, offer promising pathways for uncovering molecular mechanisms and developing resilient varieties.

A review article (DOI: 10.48130/opr-0024-0011) published in Ornamental Plant Research on 06 May 2024 reveals that multi-omics joint analysis has been instrumental in elucidating the complex genetic and biochemical networks regulating important traits in Rosaceae plants.
