Development, characterization, and comparative analysis of polymorphism at common bean SSR loci isolated from genic and genomic sources.
Microsatellites or SSRs (single sequence repeats) have been used to construct and integrate genetic maps in crop species, including Phaseolus vulgaris. In the present study, 3 cDNA librariesExpand

Extension of the core map of common bean with EST-SSR, RGA, AFLP, and putative functional markers
Microsatellites and gene-derived markers are still underrepresented in the core molecular linkage map of common bean compared to other types of markers. In order to increase the density of the coreExpand

Mapping of quantitative trait loci controlling resistance of Brassica oleracea to Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris in the field and greenhouse.
Despite the existence of resistant cultivars, little is known about the genetic control of resistance of Brassica oleracea to Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris. Quantitative trait loci (QTL)Expand
