Identification of SNP and SSR markers in eggplant using RAD tag sequencing
BackgroundThe eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) genome is relatively unexplored, especially compared to those of the other major Solanaceae crops tomato and potato. In particular, no SNP markers areExpand
The design of Capsicum spp. SSR assays via analysis of in silico DNA sequence, and their potential utility for genetic mapping
Various types of molecular marker have been used to conduct phylogenetic and mapping studies in pepper (Capsicum annuum), among which microsatellites (SSRs) have been shown to be particularlyExpand
A RAD Tag Derived Marker Based Eggplant Linkage Map and the Location of QTLs Determining Anthocyanin Pigmentation
Both inter- and intra-specific maps have been developed in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.). The former benefit from an enhanced frequency of marker polymorphism, but their relevance toExpand
A high-resolution, intraspecific linkage map of pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) and selection of reduced recombinant inbred line subsets for fast mapping.
A high-resolution, intraspecific linkage map of pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) was constructed from a population of 297 recombinant inbred lines. The parents were the large-fruited inbred cultivar 'YoloExpand
QTL analysis of plant development and fruit traits in pepper and performance of selective phenotyping
A QTL analysis was performed to determine the genetic basis of 13 horticultural traits conditioning yield in pepper (Capsicum annuum). The mapping population was a large population of 297 recombinantExpand
Are the polygenic architectures of resistance to Phytophthora capsici and P. parasitica independent in pepper?
The pepper accession Criollo de Morelos 334 is the most efficient source of resistance currently known to Phytophthora capsici and P. parasitica. To investigate whether genetic controls of resistanceExpand
Multivariate Analysis of Genetic Relationships between Italian Pepper Landraces
The heterogeneity of pedoclimatic conditions and the farmer selection for adaptation to local tastes and uses have favored the maintenance in cultivation in Italy of numerous pepper (Capsicum annuumExpand
The Population Structure and Diversity of Eggplant from Asia and the Mediterranean Basin
A collection of 238 eggplant breeding lines, heritage varieties and selections within local landraces provenanced from Asia and the Mediterranean Basin was phenotyped with respect to key plant andExpand
Population structure and genetic variation in autochthonous globe artichoke germplasm from Sicily Island
Abstract Globe artichoke is native to the Mediterranean basin, where it is presumed to have evolved from the wild cardoon. Italy is a leading producer and numerous varietal types, which are usuallyExpand
A chromosome-anchored eggplant genome sequence reveals key events in Solanaceae evolution
With approximately 450 species, spiny Solanum species constitute the largest monophyletic group in the Solanaceae family, but a high-quality genome assembly from this group is presently missing. WeExpand
