The Effect of PPEGID1A On Vegetative Growth of Fruit Trees

A novel gene for a recessive dwarf trait in peach and its role in controlling tree size. Silencing the gene results in Prunus trees having a dwarf appearance while still retaining normal flower and fruit development. The degree of silencing corresponds to the degree of overall tree size.


•Developing crop trees with different degrees of dwarfing could lead to high density production, reduce manual labor costs, and reduce the volume of chemical inputs needed
•Environmental benefit given that less agricultural land and chemical inputs are needed
