DNA Extraction from silica gel preserved common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) leaves

Authors: Male. A.S, Kato. F, Mukankusi. C.M

Extraction of high-quality DNA from field specimen requires collection under liquid nitrogen which is not readily available in resource constrained laboratories in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). A method of extracting DNA from silica gel preserved common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) leaves is presented. Our method which does not involve the use.. Read More»

Genetic and phenotypic association of the carnauba palm tree evaluated by inter-simple sequence repeat and biometric traits

Authors: C.G. Fajardo, R.A.R. Silva, K.P.T. Chagas, F.A. Vieira

The carnauba palm Copernicia prunifera is the third most important non-timber forest species in Brazil; it is mainly known for the production of carnauba wax. We examined intrapopulation genetic diversity and correlated genotypic and phenotypic traits of 28 trees from a coastal location in Rio Grande do Norte state. Phenotypic.. Read More»

Parapatric speciation found in Limnonectes (Dicroglossidae) species in Thailand

Authors: Pimwipa Teerawarunyoo, Chatmongkon Suwannapoom, Phuping Sucharitakul, Kittisak Buddhachat, Waranee Pradit, Korakot Nganvongpanit and Siriwadee Chomdej

Biodiversity stems from speciation, and species identification allows scientists to measure species biodiversity. However, some closely related species, particularly amphibians that choose to inhabit the same environment, are difficult to identify. Juvenile specimens of Limnonectes gyldenstolpei (Lg) and L. taylori (Lt) were u.. Read More»

Genetic diversity of Saccharum complex using ISSR markers

Authors: L.A.R. Oliveira, C.A. Machado, M.N. Cardoso, A.C.A. Oliveira, A.L. Amaral, A.R.C. Rabbani, A.V.C. Silva and A.S. Ledo

Sugarcane (Saccharum sp, Poaceae) is native to Southeast Asia, and due to growing demand as raw material, its cultivation recently expanded to new frontiers. The genetic diversity analysis is essential for targeting strategies in the formation and maintenance of a germplasm. This study aimed to assess the genetic diversity of .. Read More»

Mating system and intrapopulational genetic diversity of Copernicia prunifera (Arecaceae): a native palm from Brazilian semiarid

Authors: R.A.R. Silva, C.G. Fajardo and F.A. Vieira

The aim of this study was to investigate the mating system and genetic diversity of the palm Copernicia prunifera using inter-simple sequence repeat markers. We found that the C. prunifera has multiple inflorescences with hermaphroditic flowers and pollen viability of 62%. Outcrossing rates at the population level (N = 267) pr.. Read More»

Analysis of genetic diversity of Hyptis pectinata (L.) Poit. plants using ISSR markers

Authors: R.B. Feitosa-Alcantara, A.V.C. Silva, A.F. Blank, C.S. Almeida, S.V. Alvares-Carvalho and M.F. Arrigoni-Blank

Hyptis pectinata, popularly known as ‘sambacaitá’ or ‘canudinho’, is a medicinal and aromatic species widely used in the Brazilian Northeast. In Sergipe, the excessive extraction of natural resources may reduce the genetic variability of native plants. Thus, molecular markers have frequently been.. Read More»
