Abstract: The incidence of many diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes, is associated with malnutrition and an unbalanced daily diet. Vegetables are an important source of vitamins and essential compounds for human health. As a result, such metabolites have increasingly become the focus of breeding programs. Tomato is one of the most popular components of our daily diet. Therefore, the improvement of tomato's nutritional quality is an important goal. In the present study, we performed targeted metabolic profiling of an interspecific Solanum pimpinellifolium x S. lycopersicum inbred backcross line (IBL) population and identified quantitative trait loci responsible for the nutritional value of tomato. Transgressive segregation was apparent for many of the nutritional compounds such that some IBLs had extremely high levels of various amino acids and vitamins compared to their parents. A total of 117 QTLs for nutritional traits including 62 QTLs for amino acids, 18 QTLs for fatty acids, 12 QTLs for water-soluble vitamins, and 25 QTLs for fat-soluble vitamins were identified. Moreover, almost 24% of identified QTLs were confirmed in previous studies, and 40 possible gene candidates were found for 18 identified QTLs. These findings can help breeders to improve the nutritional value of tomato.
