A unified classification system for eukaryotic transposable elements
This work proposes the first unified hierarchical classification system, designed on the basis of the transposition mechanism, sequence similarities and structural relationships, that can be easily applied by non-experts. Expand
The grapevine genome sequence suggests ancestral hexaploidization in major angiosperm phyla
A high-quality draft of the genome sequence of grapevine is obtained from a highly homozygous genotype, revealing the contribution of three ancestral genomes to the grapevine haploid content and explaining the chronology of previously described whole-genome duplication events in the evolution of flowering plants.

The comparison of RFLP, RAPD, AFLP and SSR (microsatellite) markers for germplasm analysis
A comparison of genetic similarity matrices revealed that, if the comparison involved both cultivated and wild soybean accessions, estimates based on RFLPs, RAPD, AFLPs and SSRs are highly correlated, indicating congruence between these assays. Expand
Microsatellites are preferentially associated with nonrepetitive DNA in plant genomes
Microsatellites are a ubiquitous class of simple repetitive DNA sequence. An excess of such repetitive tracts has been described in all eukaryotes analyzed and is thought to result from theExpand
Characterization of polyploid wheat genomic diversity using a high-density 90 000 single nucleotide polymorphism array
The developed array and cluster identification algorithms provide an opportunity to infer detailed haplotype structure in polyploid wheat and will serve as an invaluable resource for diversity studies and investigating the genetic basis of trait variation in wheat. Expand
A simple sequence repeat-based linkage map of barley.
The mapped SSRs provide a framework for rapidly assigning chromosomal designations and polarity in future mapping programs in barley and a convenient alternative to RFLP for aligning information derived from different populations. Expand
The Norway spruce genome sequence and conifer genome evolution
The draft assembly of the 20-gigabase genome of Norway spruce (Picea abies), the first available for any gymnosperm, is presented, revealing numerous long (>10,000 base pairs) introns, gene-like fragments, uncharacterized long non-coding RNAs and short RNAs, which opens up new genomic avenues for conifer forestry and breeding.

Comparative analysis of genetic similarity among maize inbred lines detected by RFLPs, RAPDs, SSRs, and AFLPs
Abstract DNA-based fingerprinting technologies have proven useful in genetic similarity studies. RFLP is still most commonly used in the estimation of genetic diversity in plant species, but theExpand
SNP frequency, haplotype structure and linkage disequilibrium in elite maize inbred lines
No decline of linkage disequilibrium within a few hundred base pairs was found in the elite maize germplasm, consistent with the effects of breeding-induced bottlenecks and selection on the elite germplas pool. Expand
PCR-amplified microsatellites as markers in plant genetics.
Polymerase chain reaction amplification of ( AT)n and (TAT)n microsatellites in soybean revealed that they are highly polymorphic, as a consequence of length variation, somatically stable and inherited in a co-dominant Mendelian manner. Expand
