1. Cultivar Identification
- Germplasm characterization
- Genetic variability studies
- Pedigree and quality control

2. Hybrid Purity Testing
- Purity test of hybrid seed production
- New hybrid and pedigree control

3. Major Gene Detection
- Genetic map construction
- QTL analysis
- Association genetics

4. Marker-Assisted Selection (MAS)
- In a wide range of species: resistance genes
- Prunus: acidity, round/flat fruit shape (paraguayo or chato), fruit flesh colour and texture, peach/nectarine, flowering time and maturity date, auto-compatibility and male sterility

5. Special Breeding Applications
- Whole genome selection (e.g. introduction of exotic alleles)
