PREMISE OF THE STUDY A new set of microsatellite or simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers for garlic, an important medicinal spice, was developed to aid studies of genetic diversity and to define efficient strategies for germplasm conservation. METHODS AND RESULTS Using a (CT)(8)- and (GT)(8)-enriched library, a total of 16 SSR loci were developed and(More)
Garlic is a spice and a medicinal plant; hence, there is an increasing interest in ‘developing’ new varieties with different culinary properties or with high content of nutraceutical compounds. Phenotypic traits and dominant molecular markers are predominantly used to evaluate the genetic diversity of garlic clones. However, 24 SSR markers (codominant)(More)
