Smulders, M.J.M.; Vukosavljev, M.; Shahin, A.; Weg, W.E. van de; Arens, P.


In this paper we present an overview of current developments in sequencing that offer the possibility to generate large numbers of markers in ornamental crops. The prospects of this new sequence technology for the application of markers in breeding of outcrossing and/or polyploid crops are discussed using examples in rose and lily.
