Despite the important contribution of volatile compounds to fruit flavor we still know very little about the molecular genetic basis for volatile production in most fruits. Research using a combination of omics and well characterized genetic resources is changing this situation. I will present some examples of our work on different fruit species that reveals important genome regions and genes for volatile production that can be used for breeding and biotech approaches.
