End Date: Jun 30, 2015
Whole transcriptome sequencing method will be utilized to identify the global gene expression patterns on samples with various maturity and duration of postharvest storage and regimes. “Golden Delicious”, which is prone to the development of CO2 injury, will be used as model. Fruits from two different orchards at different location will be sampled from pre- and post-harvest stages, at different storage regimes for transcriptome analysis. Two orchards, one was previously classified with high tendency of CO2 injury incidence, will be selected for sampling. The detail of horticultural practice in two orchards such as application of chemical and/or nutrients application as well as microclimate parameter will also be taken into account when data are analyzed.
