Vainstein, Z. Adam, D. Zamir, D. Weiss, E. Lewinsohn, E. Pichersky Keywords: ESTs, flowers, functional genomics, proteomics, scent, transgenic plants. Abstract: For centuries, rose ( Rosa hybrida ) has been the most important crop in the floriculture industry. Rose petals represent a unique system for studies of a wide range of highly important topics, such as the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites, including scent compounds and pigments, as well as developmental processes. Advances in genomics have made it possible to integrate entire genetic programs responsible for key processes, instead of focusing on individual phenomena via
