To map novel fruit quality and disease resistance traits in Fragaria x ananassa, and using a high-throughput phenomics approach develop inexpensive ways of linking phenotype to genotype.  We aim to answer the question: Can agronomically important phenotypes that are currently screened in the field be replicated in the laboratory and rapidly screened, in order to decrease the time and expense of traditional and marker-assisted breeding programmes?
