Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is a major food source and fodder legume, popularly known for its high content of seed-protein. Its role is critical in crop rotation, and for fixing nitrogen effectively. Polymorphic simple sequence repeat markers from transcript sequences (cDNA; simple sequence repeat [SSR]) were developed for faba bean (Vicia faba). We found(More)
Sixteen polymorphic microsatellite (SSR) markers, developed from an SSR-enriched genomic DNA library of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.), were used to assess genetic diversity, phylogenetic relationships, and population structure among 150 sesame accessions collected from 22 countries. A total of 121 alleles were detected among the sesame accessions. The number(More)
The main objective of the present study was to identify simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers associated with the amino acid content of rice (Oryza sativa L.). SSR markers were selected by prescreening for the relationship to amino acid content. Eighty-four rice landrace accessions from Korea were evaluated for 16 kinds of amino acids in brown rice and(More)
Vetch (Vicia sativa L.) is one of the most important annual forage legumes in the World due to its multiple uses (i.e., hay, grain, silage and green manure) and high nutritional value. However, detrimental cyanoalanine toxins in its plant parts including seeds and its vulnerability to hard winter conditions are currently reducing the agronomic values of(More)
A genetic evaluation of safflower germplasm collections derived from different geographical regions and countries will provide useful information for sustainable conservation and the utilization of genetic diversity. However, the molecular marker information is limited for evaluation of genetic diversity of safflower germplasm. In this study, we acquired(More)
Improvement of rice eating quality is an important objective in current breeding programs. In this study, 130 rice accessions of diverse origin were genotyped using 170 SSR markers to identify marker–trait associations with physicochemical traits on eating quality. Analysis of population structure revealed four subgroups in the population. Linkage(More)
Transcriptomes from high-throughput sequencing technology provide a good resource for molecular markers. Here, we report the development of polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from transcript sequences via 454 pyrosequencing for Vicia sativa subsp. nigra (narrow-leaved vetch). In contrast to V. sativa subsp. sativa, the most commonly grown(More)
In the present work, genomic DNA libraries for 18 underutilized crop species (including 11 dicot and 7 monocot species) were enriched for several di- and tri- nucleotide microsatellites by using an optimized procedure. About 500–960 clones from each library were sequenced and all the sequences were characterized to have a comparative look on relative(More)
Mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) is a unique species in its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen, with early maturity, and relatively good drought resistance. We used 454 sequencing technology for transcriptome sequencing. A total of 150 159 and 142 993 reads produced 5 254 and 6 374 large contigs (≥ 500 bp) with an average length of 833 and 853 for(More)
The present study reports isolation and characterization of 12 polymorphic microsatellite markers for Amaranthus hypochondriacus. A total of 92 alleles were detected across the 20 accessions, with an average of 7.7 alleles per locus. The observed (H O ) and expected (H E ) heterozygosity values ranged from 0 to 0.95 and from 0.49 to 0.92, respectively. At(More)
