    • A gene-derived SNP-based high resolution linkage map of carrot including the location of QTL conditioning root and leaf anthocyanin pigmentation 

      Cavagnaro, Pablo; Iorizzo, Massimo; Yildiz, Mehtap; Senalik, Douglas A.; Parsons, Joshua; Ellison, Shelby L.; Simon, Philipp W. (2014-12)
      Purple carrots accumulate large quantities of anthocyanins in their roots and leaves. These flavonoid pigments possess antioxidant activity and are implicated in providing health benefits. Informative, saturated linkage ...
    • Expression and mapping of anthocyanin biosynthesis genes in carrot 

      Yildiz, Mehtap; Willis, David K.; Cavagnaro, Pablo; Iorizzo, Massimo; Abak, Kazim; Simon, Philipp W. (2013-07)
      Anthocyanin gene expression has been extensively studied in leaves, fruits and flowers of numerous plants. Little, however, is known about anthocyanin accumulation in roots of carrots or other species. We quantified ...
    • A high-quality carrot genome assembly provides new insights into carotenoid accumulation and asterid genome evolution 

      Iorizzo, Massimo; Ellison, Shelby L.; Senalik, Douglas A.; Peng, Zeng; Satapoomin, Pimchanok; Jiaying, Huang; Bowman, Megan; Iovene, Marina; Sanseverino, Walter; Cavagnaro, Pablo; Yildiz, Mehtap; Macko-Podgórni, Alicja; Moranska, Emilia; Grzebelus, Ewa; Grzebelus, Dariusz; Ashrafi, Hamid; Zhijun, Zheng; Shifeng, Cheng; Spooner, David M.; Deynze, Allen Van; Simon, Philipp W. (2016)
      We report a high-quality chromosome-scale assembly and analysis of the carrot (Daucus carota) genome, the first sequenced genome to include a comparative evolutionary analysis among members of the euasterid II clade. We ...
