Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.), generally known as brinjal in South Asia, is mainly a vegetable cultivated for its fleshy fruits. In the last several decades, eggplant breeding has evolved from an isolated field activity focused on enhancing a few characteristics to becoming a collaborative and highly technical process with the application of genomics and biotechnological approaches. In the past, Eggplant breeders have taken advantage of the synteny between the genomes of Eggplant, Pepper, and [...] Read more

Pepper (Capsicum genus) is a main vegetable and spice crop originated in the American tropics and nowadays cultivated all over the world in temperate and tropical areas. Given its wide diversity, the crop is extremely versatile and suitable for innumerable uses as food and non-food products. In the past decades, pepper breeding focused on the use of wild and domesticated species to transfer beneficial traits, particularly for resistance to major pathogens and pests. By exploiting the existing natural variation these activities allowed to map causative genes underlying the variation of major traits. Change of the scenario in agriculture linked to global warming [...] Read more
