Dave Zlezak has an article in the 2017 American Rose Annual titled "Finding the Genetic Needle in the Haystack".

The article below appears (to me) to be an important work in that field.

Thank you for posting this Henry!! It was a treat to visit their lab in Lyon last summer. Dr. Bendahmane coordinates a wonderful team of scientists and students. They did a great job better understanding how this major gene works that leads to double flowers in roses. The rose genome that is now available, I suspect will only speed up the discovery rate of genes and other aspects of underlying biology impacting the key traits we are interested in.
