" Genes presumably involved in flower color, scent and flowering are assigned. The results of this study will serve as a valuable resource for fundamental and applied research in the rose, including breeding and phylogenetic study of cultivated roses."

The above link seems to be broken, here's one to the full text version of the paper. ... res/dsx042

This is not the first genome paper for roses but it looks like the most comprehensive at first pass and the first to cover multiflora which is a big part of the modern rose? Am I wrong to expect to see some new cultivars derived from marker assisted breeding now that this genie is out of the test tube, especially because this paper is from the Suntory breeding program?
