For many applications in population genetics, codominant simple sequence repeats (SSRs) may have substantial advantages over dominant anonymous markers such as amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs). In high polyploids, however, allele dosage of SSRs cannot easily be determined and alleles are not easily attributable to potentially diploidized(More)
The availability of high-resolution, cost-effective polymorphic genetic markers displaying Mendelian inheritance is a prerequisite for fine-scale population genetic analyses as well as informed conservation and sustainable management. Silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) is a widespread European species of economic and ecological importance for which genetic(More)
Understanding local adaptation in forest trees is currently a key research and societal priority. Geographically and ecologically marginal populations provide ideal case studies, because environmental stress along with reduced gene flow can facilitate the establishment of locally adapted populations. We sampled European silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) trees(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY We present a protocol for the annotation of transcriptome sequence data and the identification of candidate genes therein using the example of the nonmodel conifer Abies alba. • METHODS AND RESULTS A normalized cDNA library was built from an A. alba seedling. The sequencing on a 454 platform yielded more than 1.5 million(More)
BACKGROUND Local adaptation is a key driver of phenotypic and genetic divergence at loci responsible for adaptive traits variations in forest tree populations. Its experimental assessment requires rigorous sampling strategies such as those involving population pairs replicated across broad spatial scales. METHODS A hierarchical Bayesian model of selection(More)
