    Abstract
    Background
    GRAS genes formed one of the important transcription factor gene families in plants, had been identified in several plant species. The family genes were involved in plant growth, development, and stress resistance. However, the comparative analysis of GRAS genes in Rosaceae species was insufficient.
    Results
    In this study, a total of 333 GRAS genes were identified in six Rosaceae species, including 51 in strawberry , 78 in apple , 41 in black raspberry , 59 in European pear , 56 in Chinese rose , and 48 in peach. Motif analysis showed the VHIID domain, SAW motif, LR I...
