Identification of microsatellite sequences in Vitis riparia and their applicability for genotyping of different Vitis species.
A Vitis riparia genomic library was screened for the presence of (GA)n simple sequence repeats (SSR) and 18 primer pairs yielding amplification products of the expected size were designed.Expand

Microsatellite variability in grapevine cultivars from different European regions and evaluation of assignment testing to assess the geographic origin of cultivars
Abstract Nine microsatellite markers (VVMD5, VVMD7, VVS2, ssrVrZAG21, ssrVrZAG47, ssrVrZAG62, ssrVrZAG64, ssrVrZAG79 and ssrVrZAG83) were chosen for the analysis of marker information content, theExpand

The use of microsatellites for germplasm management in a Portuguese grapevine collection
Abstract To initiate the characterization of the Portuguese grapevine genepool, we have genotyped 49 Portuguese grapevine cultivars at 11 microsatellite loci. The markers proved to be informative inExpand

A gene controlling sex in grapevines placed on a molecular marker-based genetic map.
Genetic maps of Vitis (2n = 38) have been constructed from an interspecific hybrid population of 58 seedlings of the cross 'Horizon' ('Seyval' x 'Schuyler') x Illinois 547-1 (V. cinerea B9 x V.Expand

Identification of microsatellite loci in apricot
The sequences of 21 primer pairs of microsatellite loci screened from a genomic library of apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) are reported in this study. All the identified microsatellite loci wereExpand

Characterization of microsatellite loci in village indigobirds Vidua chalybeata and cross‐species amplification in estrildid and ploceid finches
We characterized 11 microsatellite primer pairs for the village indigobird Vidua chalybeata. The loci were highly polymorphic, with 7–13 alleles per locus. Gene diversity, estimated as expectedExpand

Genetic characterization of Croatian grapevine cultivars and detection of synonymous cultivars in neighboring regions
Twenty-two native Croatian grapevine varieties representing three different growing and climatic regions (Dalmatia, Istria, continental Croatia) have been genotyped at nine SSR loci. The identicalExpand

Reconstruction of a grapevine pedigree by microsatellite analysis
Abstract Microsatellites are ideal markers for revealing genetic relationships between individuals because of their co-dominant inheritance. In this study we determined the genetic profiles of 52Expand

Genotyping of grapevine and rootstock cultivars using microsatellite markers
Sixty-six grapevine and rootstock cultivars from an Austrian germplasm collection were genotyped using the following 10 microsatellite loci: VVS1, VVS2, VVS3, VVS4 (THOMAS and SCOTT 1993), VVS29Expand

Behavioural and genetic evidence of a recent population switch to a novel host species in brood-parasitic indigobirds Vidua chalybeata
We describe a population of Village Indigobirds Vidua chalybeata on the Zambezi River that parasitizes the nests and mimics the songs of a novel host species, Brown Firefinch Lagonosticta nitidula,Expand
