The objective of the EU GENBERRY project is to ensure that agricultural biodiversity of small berries, strawberry and red raspberry, is preserved and characterized for using them in further breeding programs. This project is based on the notion of networking, considering that maximum added-value can only be reached by bringing together otherwise rather scattered competences on techniques of cultivation, phenotypic description, molecular biology, as well as evaluation for health value compounds and disease resistance.
This project involves ten partners located in eight European countries (France, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Spain). This paper describes the work finalized to the evaluation of strawberry germ-plasm fruit nutritional quality, in particular the analytical protocols identified for the study of the bioactive compounds of strawberry accessions and their application and validation in fruit of a cultivar (‘Clery’) grown in 3 different collections in Europe.
