This meeting brought together researchers from all over the world and is the most important quadrennial scientific event related to horticulture under the auspices of the International Society of Horticultural Science (ISHS).
The scientific program of the conference was organized into 25 symposia with lectures, oral presentations and electronic posters, the Aragonese government said in a press release.
CITA has issued a communiqué entitled “Assessment of Flesh Color Diversity in Classified Apple Germplasm assemblies by Image Analysis” (Assessment of Flesh Color Diversity in Apple Germplasm assemblies through Image Analysis) where Anna Peña, Francesco Javier Bielsa, Lourdes Castell, Patricia Irisari and Pilar Iria of CITA with Researchers from the Public University of Navarra (UPNA): Carlos Miranda Jimenez, Julia Arellano, Ana Valencia, Jorge Orestarazo, L.
Ana Pina, Francisco Javier Bielsa, Patricia Irisari and Pilar Iria of CITA together with Carlos Miranda, L Gonzaga Santesteban and Jorge Urrestarazu, of UPNA also presented the label “ differential expression of key enzymes involved in browning of the pulp.
