Reproducibility testing of RAPD, AFLP and SSR markers in plants by a network of European laboratories
A number of PCR-based techniques can be used to detect polymorphisms in plants. For their wide-scale usage in germplasm characterisation and breeding it is important that these marker technologiesExpand

Molecular genetic analysis of black poplar (Populus nigra L.) along Dutch rivers
The genetic structure of remaining black poplar (Populus nigra) trees on the banks of the Dutch Rhine branches was investigated using the AFLP technique. In total, 143 trees, including one P.Expand

Effector Genomics Accelerates Discovery and Functional Profiling of Potato Disease Resistance and Phytophthora Infestans Avirulence Genes
Potato is the world's fourth largest food crop yet it continues to endure late blight, a devastating disease caused by the Irish famine pathogen Phytophthora infestans. Breeding broad-spectrumExpand

Construction and analysis of a microsatellite-based database of European wheat varieties
Abstract.A database of 502 recent European wheat varieties, mainly of winter type, was constructed using 19 wheat microsatellites and one secalin-specific marker. All datapoints were generated in atExpand

Physiological characterization of natural transformation in Acinetobacter calcoaceticus.
Acinetobacter calcoaceticus BD413 develops competence for natural transformation immediately after the start of the exponential growth-phase and remains competent up to e few hours into theExpand

QualitySNP: a pipeline for detecting single nucleotide polymorphisms and insertions/deletions in EST data from diploid and polyploid species
TLDR
We have developed a new algorithm to detect reliable SNPs and insertions/deletions (indels) in EST data, both with and without quality files. Expand

Use of short microsatellites from database sequences to generate polymorphisms among Lycopersicon esculentum cultivars and accessions of other Lycopersicon species
Abstract A search of nearly 2000 sequences from Solanaceae species in the EMBL and Genbank databases yielded 220 microsatellites. Among these were 80 microsatellites from 675 Lycopersicon entries.Expand

Efficient targeting of plant disease resistance loci using NBS profiling
The conserved sequences in the nucleotide-binding sites of the nucleotide-binding site-leucine-rich repeat (NBS-LRR) class of disease resistance (R) genes have been used for PCR-based R-geneExpand

Genotype calling in tetraploid species from bi-allelic marker data using mixture models
TLDR
We present a novel algorithm, implemented in the R package fitTetra, to assign genotypes for bi-allelic markers to tetraploid samples from genotyping assays that produce intensity signals for both alleles. Expand

Identification of cut rose (Rosa hybrida) and rootstock varieties using robust sequence tagged microsatellite site markers
Abstract.In this study a DNA fingerprinting protocol was developed for the identification of rose varieties based on the variability of microsatellites. Microsatellites were isolated from RosaExpand
