Platonia insignis Mart. (Clusiaceae) is widespread throughout the Amazon and adjacent areas. The fruits (known locally as “bacuri”) have significant commercial potential, but the species is under threat from agro-industrial expansion. The genetic variability within 72 genotypes of P. insignis belonging to ten populations collected in the Brazilian states of(More)
We evaluated genetic variability of mango (Mangifera indica) accessions maintained in the Active Germplasm Bank of Embrapa Meio-Norte in Teresina, Piauí, Brazil, using RAPDs. Among these accessions, 35 originated from plantings in Brazil, six from the USA and one from India. Genomic DNA, extracted from leaf material using a commercial purification kit,(More)
The last few years have seen a significant increase in the number of large-scale sequencing projects generating whole genome databases. These sequence databases can be surveyed (genome sequence survey) for tandem repeats as an alternative means to develop microsatellites for monitoring and selecting natural populations and cultivars of Jatropha curcas. A(More)
We described the isolation and characterization of 23 microsatellite loci from the stingless bee (Melipona subnitida). Out of 52 microsatellite primer pairs screened, 17 loci displayed polymorphism and 6 were monomorphic. The analysis of variability was performed in 56 individuals. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 22 among populations;(More)
