It's a start as far as I am concerned. There were some very good people working on the project.

I don't have time to realy study the article today, but will send the link to a botanist I am working with in Patagonia who has also been working in this area.

Have a good gardening day ... Smiling
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

One more genome map. As we learn how to link biological characteristics to groups of genes in roses, it should help speed up breeding programs. Probably not earthshattering, but possibly it will mean more favorable attributes will appear in new roses sooner. I doubt that my garden will be changed much by this but maybe someone's grandchildren will be happy for it.
When you dance with nature, try not to step on her toes.
