Comparative study of the discriminating capacity of RAPD, AFLP and SSR markers and of their effectiveness in establishing genetic relationships in olive
Abstract. RAPDs, AFLPs and SSRs were compared in terms of their informativeness and efficiency in a study of genetic diversity and relationships among 32 olive cultivars cultivated in Italy andExpand

Olive genetic diversity assessed using amplified fragment length polymorphisms
Abstract Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis was used to study the genetic variation within and among populations of genus Olea. A group of genotypes, all of them cultivatedExpand

Microsatellite markers are powerful tools for discriminating among olive cultivars and assigning them to geographically defined populations.
Twelve simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci were used to differentiate among 118 cultivars sampled in several countries of the Mediterranean basin and to analyze the genetic structure of olive cultivarExpand

Comparative 454 pyrosequencing of transcripts from two olive genotypes during fruit development
BackgroundDespite its primary economic importance, genomic information on olive tree is still lacking. 454 pyrosequencing was used to enrich the very few sequence data currently available for theExpand

Genetic structure of wild and cultivated olives in the central Mediterranean basin.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Olive cultivars and their wild relatives (oleasters) represent two botanical varieties of Olea europaea subsp. europaea (respectively europaea and sylvestris). Olive cultivarsExpand

Identification of new polymorphic regions and differentiation of cultivated olives (Olea europaea L.) through plastome sequence comparison
BackgroundThe cultivated olive (Olea europaea L.) is the most agriculturally important species of the Oleaceae family. Although many studies have been performed on plastid polymorphisms to evaluateExpand

A procedure for olive oil traceability and authenticity: DNA extraction, multiplex PCR and LDR–universal array analysis
Traceability of olive oils is relevant not only in assessing their origin, but also in protecting against frauds. Here, we present an improvement of the assay previously developed for the genotypingExpand
