 A genetic map of Pedunculate oak (Quercus robur) was constructed based on one 5S rDNA, 271 RAPD, ten SCAR, 18 microsatellite, one minisatellite, and six isozyme markers. A total of 94 individuals from a full-sib family was genotyped. Two maps, including 307 markers, were constructed according to the “two-way pseudo-testcross” mapping strategy. Testcross(More)
Interspecific differentiation values (G(ST)) between two closely related oak species (Quercus petraea and Q. robur) were compiled across different studies with the aim to explore the distribution of differentiation at the genome level. The study was based on a total set of 389 markers (isozymes, AFLPs, SCARs, microsatellites, and SNPs) for which allelic(More)
In this study a size selected genomic library from Quercus petraea was screened for (GA/CT)n-microsatellite sequences. The resulting loci were analysed by PCR for their usefulness as molecular markers in Q. petraea and Q. robur. 17 out of 52 tested primer pairs resulted in the amplification of a polymorphic single-locus pattern. The number of alleles found(More)
Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) based genetic linkage maps were developed for hexaploid sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam., 2n = 6x = 90) using a segregating population derived from a biparental cross between the cultivars 'Tanzania' and 'Bikilamaliya'. A total of 632 ('Tanzania') and 435 ('Bikilamaliya') AFLPs could be ordered in 90 and(More)
RNaseH-LTR regions of the Ty1-copia retrotransposon were amplified and cloned from the sweetpotato genome using RNaseH gene-specific degenerate primers and restriction site-specific adaptor primers. Ninety clones out of the 240 sequenced were identified with a variable degree of homology to the Ty1-copia RNaseH gene. Three (Str6, Str85, Str187) of the 90(More)
Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl. and Q. robur L. hybridize frequently and occupy similar, though distinct, ecological niches. So far, genetic discrimination between these species at the molecular level has been based mainly on neutral markers. Because such markers often exhibit low species differentiation because of high genetic compatibility and exchange(More)
We developed 74 microsatellite marker primer pairs yielding 76 polymorphic loci, specific for the short arm of rye chromosome 1R (1RS) in wheat background. Four libraries enriched for microsatellite motifs AG, AAG, AC and AAC were constructed from DNA of flow-sorted 1RS chromosomes and 1,290 clones were sequenced. Additionally, 2,778 BAC-end-sequences from(More)
Populus nigra L. is a pioneer tree species of riparian ecosystems that is threatened with extinction because of the loss of its natural habitat. To evaluate the existing genetic diversity of P. nigra within ex-situ collections, we analyzed 675 P. nigra L. accessions from nine European gene banks with three amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and(More)
Somatic embryos of Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) differentiate from proembryogenic masses (PEMs), which are subject to autodestruction through programmed cell death. In PEMs, somatic embryo formation and activation of programmed cell death are interrelated processes. We sought to determine if activation of programmed cell death in PEMs is caused(More)
Cytoplasmically inherited characters such as resistance to viral and fungal diseases, determination of starch types, crop yield, resistance to low or high temperature often contribute to the advantageous phenotypic traits of plants. In the present study, our goal was to elucidate the genealogy of cytoplasmic genomes chloroplast and mitochondria in banana.(More)
