Robust and highly informative microsatellite-based genetic identity kit for potato
The fingerprinting of 742 potato landraces with 51 simple sequence repeat (SSR, or microsatellite) markers resulted in improving a previously constructed potato genetic identity kit. All SSR markerExpand
A single domestication for potato based on multilocus amplified fragment length polymorphism genotyping.
The cultivated potato, Solanum tuberosum, ultimately traces its origin to Andean and Chilean landraces developed by pre-Colombian cultivators. These Andean landraces exhibit tremendous morphologicalExpand
Selection of highly informative and user-friendly microsatellites (SSRs) for genotyping of cultivated potato
Characterization of nearly 1,000 cultivated potato accessions with simple sequence repeats (SSRs; also referred to as microsatellites) has allowed the identification of a reference set of SSR markersExpand
Geographic distribution of wild potato species.
The geographic distribution of wild potatoes (Solanaceae sect. Petota) was analyzed using a database of 6073 georeferenced observations. Wild potatoes occur in 16 countries, but 88% of theExpand
New Species of Wild Tomatoes (Solanum Section Lycopersicon: Solanaceae) from Northern Peru
Abstract Solanum arcanum and S. huaylasense, two new wild tomato species segregated from Solanum peruvianum sensu lato, are described and illustrated. These two new species are placed in a key withExpand
Granule-bound starch synthase (GBSSI) gene phylogeny of wild tomatoes (Solanum L. section Lycopersicon [Mill.] Wettst. subsection Lycopersicon).
Eight wild tomato species are native to western South America and one to the Galapagos Islands. Different classifications of tomatoes have been based on morphological or biological criteria. OurExpand
Comparison of AFLPs with other markers for phylogenetic inference in wild tomatoes [Solanum L. section Lycopersicon (Mill.) Wettst.]
ac.uk Wild tomatoes (Solanum section Lycopersicon) are native to western South America. The delimitation and relationships of tomato species have differed widely depending upon whether morphologicalExpand
We used chloroplast DNA restriction site analysis to test hypotheses of relationships of solanum subgenus potatoe (including potatoes and pepinos), two other Solanum, Cyphomandra (the tree tomatoes),Expand
Applications of next-generation sequencing in plant biology.
The last several years have seen revolutionary advances in DNA sequencing technologies with the advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques. NGS methods now allow millions of bases to beExpand
