Sequence-related amplified polymorphism (SRAP), a new marker system based on a simple PCR reaction: its application to mapping and gene tagging in Brassica
A simple marker technique called sequence-related amplified polymorphism (SRAP) aimed for the amplification of open reading frames (ORFs) based on two-primer amplification was developed and successfully tagged the glucosinolate desaturation gene BoGLS-ALK with these markers. Expand

Identification of broccoli and cauliflower cultivars with RAPD markers
RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) markers generated by 4 arbitrary 10-mer primers, discriminated 14 broccoli and 12 cauliflower cultivars (Brassica oleracea L.) by banding profiles by finding larger differences for each crop than within the same company. Expand

Dependent on the proposed uses of the crops under development, the ability to regulate BoGSL-ALK expression is a key step towards engineering Brassica crops with specific glucosinolate content. Expand
Genetic diversity of oilseed Brassica napus inbred lines based on sequence‐related amplified polymorphism and its relation to hybrid performance
Regression analysis revealed a statistically significant relationship between the genetic distance of the parents and seed yield in their hybrid, and their derived mid-parent and high-parent heterosis, so it is possible that some of the SRAP markers might be linked to quantitative trait loci for seed yield.

Potato Diversity in the Andean Center of Crop Domestication.
The diversity and population structure of potato landraces (Solanum spp.) within their center of domestication was studied using isozyme surveys of four polymorphic loci to assist in planning conservation strategies of crop genetic resources that are threatened by genetic erosion. Expand
Reducing progoitrin and enriching glucoraphanin in Braasica napus seeds through silencing of the GSL-ALK gene family
RNA interference was used to down-regulate the expression of GSL-ALK genes in B. napus transgenic plants through silencing of the GSL-alk gene family to potential application of the new germplasm with reduced detrimental glucosinolates and increased beneficial glucos inolates for producing improved brassica vegetables.

Glucosinolate contents in maca (Lepidium peruvianum Chacón) seeds, sprouts, mature plants and several derived commercial products
The richest sources of glucosinolates were seeds, fresh hypocotyls and sprouts, in that order, and the aromatic glucos inolates, benzylglucosinolate (glucotropaeolin) and p-methoxybenzyl glucos inolate ( glucotropic) were detected. Expand
