Abstract Over the past decades, huge advance has been made in the genetic study of crop species in order to overcome the numerous challenges faced by agriculture nowadays. Some of these challenges include modifications of traditional agricultural methods posed by climate change, as well as the increase in world population. With this aim, the development of new commercial varieties capable of coping with a changing environment has revealed as the most effective strategy. However, natural variability among cultivated species is low and as a result, genetic improvement rises as the main approach to develop more productive as well as resistant varieties. Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) is one of the major horticultural crops worldwide, whose demand continues to increase due to its nutritional properties as well as numerous forms of consumption. Tomato is also an excellent model species to understand the development of fleshy fruit plants, since it holds numerous favourable traits such as...
