Agronomic performance of plantain genotypes and genetic variability using Ward-MLM algorithm

Authors: Z. S. Gonçalves, D. R. S. da Invenção, C. A. da S. Ledo, C. F. Ferreira, E. P. Amorim

Plantains in Brazil are produced from the `Terra Maranhão’, ‘Terrinha’ and ‘D´Angola’ cultivars, which are all susceptible to black Sigatoka, weevils and nematodes. Therefore, the development of resistant plantain cultivars with agronomic characteristics aligned with market demands i.. Read More»

Genetic diversity assessment of Allium cepa L. cultivars from Bosnia and Herzegovina using SSR makers

Authors: Lutvija Karić, Maryam Golzardi, Petar Glamočlija, Jasmin Šutković

The five most common cultivars from the genus Allium cepa L. in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) were analysed, focusing on Konjic onion. Seven SSR markers for genetic similarity analysis were used to address the genetic backgrounds. The polymorphic relationship between the SSR markers was analyzed by using Polymorphic Informatio..

Large-scale development, characterization, and cross-amplification of EST–SSR markers in Chinese chive

Authors: Qingming Tang, Langbo Yi, Xianglin Yuan, Fu Li

Chinese chive (Allium tuberosum Rottler ex Spr.) is an important vegetable crop. However, genetic and breeding studies of the species have been restricted by the lack of simple sequence repeat markers (SSRs). In the present study, a total of 2553 Chinese chive SSRs were developed from the species’ transcriptome, with 626.. Read More»

Genetic diversity and population structure analysis in Perilla frutescens from Northern areas of China based on simple sequence repeats

Authors: S.J. Ma, K.J. Sa, T.K. Hong and J.K. Lee

In this study, 21 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were used to evaluate the genetic diversity and population structure among 77 Perilla accessions from high-latitude and middle-latitude areas of China. Ninety-five alleles were identified with an average of 4.52 alleles per locus. The average polymorphic information conten.. Read More»

Molecular mapping and candidate gene analysis for resistance to powdery mildew in Cucumis sativus stem

Authors: P.N. Liu, H. Miao, H.W. Lu, J.Y. Cui, G.L. Tian, T.C. Wehner, X.F. Gu and S.P. Zhang

Powdery mildew (PM) of cucumber (Cucumis sativus), caused by Podosphaera xanthii, is a major foliar disease worldwide and resistance is one of the main objectives in cucumber breeding programs. The resistance to PM in cucumber stem is important to the resistance for the whole plant. In this study, genetic analysis and gene map.. Read More»

Molecular characterization of high performance inbred lines of Brazilian common beans

Authors: P.C.B. Cardoso, M.M. Veiga, I.P.P. de Menezes, P.A.M.R. Valdisser, T.C.O. Borba, L.C. Melo, M.J. Del Peloso, C. Brondani and R.P. Vianello

The identification of germplasm genetic variability in breeding programs of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is essential for determining the potential of each combination of parent plants to obtain superior genotypes. The present study aimed to estimate the extent of genetic diversity in 172 lines and cultivars of the common bean by integrating five .. Read More»

Characterization of Capsicum species using anatomical and molecular data

Authors: G.B. Dias, V.M. Gomes, T.M.S. Moraes, U.P. Zottich, G.R. Rabelo, A.O. Carvalho, M. Moulin, L.S.A. Gonçalves, R. Rodrigues and M. Da Cunha

Capsicum species are frequently described in terms of genetic divergence, considering morphological, agronomic, and molecular databases. However, descriptions of genetic differences based on anatomical characters are rare. We examined the anatomy and the micromorphology of vegetative and reproductive organs of several Capsicum species. Four Capsicum acces.. Read More»

Molecular characterization of accessions of Cratylia argentea (Camaratuba) using ISSR markers

Authors: G.A. Luz, S.O. Gomes, R.B. Araujo Neto, M.S.C.B. Nascimento and P.S.C. Lima

Cratylia argentea (Desv.) Kuntze (Fabaceae) is a drought-tolerant, perennial legume found primarily in Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru. The shrub is well adapted to acid soils and exhibits high productivity and nutritional value, characteristics that would favor its use as a dry season animal forage supplement in semiarid r..

Screening potential SSR markers of the anadromous fish Coilia nasus by de novo transcriptome analysis using Illumina sequencing

Authors: D.-A. Fang1,2, Y.-F. Zhou2, J.-R. Duan2, M.-Y. Zhang2, D.-P. Xu2, K. Liu2, P. Xu1,2* and Q. Wei3*

RNA-Seq technology has been widely applied to tran­scriptomics, genomics, molecular marker development, and functional gene studies. In the genome, microsatellites are simple sequence re­peats (SSR) with a high degree of polymorphism that are used as DNA markers in many molecular genetic studies. Using traditional methods such as magnetic bead enr.. Read More»
