Please disregard if this is a duplicate copy of this message. In an
attempt to get it out to everyone some lists will have overlap.
One month ago Amy Iezonni and I presented a community response to Dr. Ed
Kaliekau's request for a list of gaps and priorities in US Rosaceae
research, along with a roadmap for the next directions.
Since then we have learned that apple and peach will be sequenced,
leading to an immediate adjustment and refocusing of research
priorities. We also have been advised to whittle the list down to three
essential priorities rather than a laundry list of all possible research
avenues. With these developments, we now offer the attached document
for your final commentary.
