Table I. S. pennellii BAC and cosmid clones anchored onto five genomic regions spanning fruit quantitative metabolic loci (QML) and yield-associated loci (YAL)

Metabolite QTLs and YALs listed here were previously reported by Eshed and Zamir (1995), Liu et al. (2003), Schauer et al. (2006), Semel et al. (2006), and Tieman et al. (2006).
