Research article on Frageria vesca

If you're as geekily into strawberries as I am, this article may interest you.

It is an article about the recent genome mapping of the woodland strawberry (Frageria vesca) and it's historical roots (heh, a pun!) and similarities to the modern garden strawberry (Frageria x).

I've grown strawberries for several years now, but last year was the first time I'd grown woodland or alpine strawberries. There is a great store and information resource over at The Strawberry Store where Michael Wellik has put up various web pages and blogs about the various strawberry cultivars.
