Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) is a species in the large family of the Solanaceae and is important as an agronomic crop and as a model system in plant biotechnology. Despite its importance, only limited molecular marker resources are available that can be used for genome analysis, genetic mapping and breeding. We report here on the development and(More)
We report the first linkage map of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) generated through microsatellite markers. The microsatellite markers were predominantly derived from genomic sequences of the Tobacco Genome Initiative (TGI) through bioinformatics screening for microsatellite motives. A total of 684 primer pairs were screened for functionality in a panel of(More)
SUMMARY The advent of modern biotechnology and the accelerated pace of scientific discovery in the areas of genetic modification (GM) and genomics are introducing fruitful developments in both the medical and agricultural sciences. However, the presence of genetically modified crops in food products has recently become a widely debated and contentious issue(More)
