Genome-wide characterization of simple sequence repeats in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
The cucumber genome is rich in microsatellites; AT and AAG are the most abundant repeat motifs in genomic and EST sequences of cucumber, respectively; the level of polymorphism seems to be positively associated with the number of repeat units in the microsatellite. Expand
Using next-generation sequencing approaches to isolate simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci in the plant sciences.
In the future, NGS technologies will massively increase the number of SSRs and other genetic markers available to conduct genetic research in understudied but economically important crops such as cranberry. Expand

Chromatin Structure and Physical Mapping of Chromosome 6 of Potato and Comparative Analyses With Tomato
FISH mapping of several potato BACs on tomato pachytene chromosome 6 revealed an overall colinearity between the two chromosomes, and shows that the potato and tomato genomes contain more chromosomal rearrangements than those reported previously on the basis of comparative genetic linkage mapping.

Comparison of AFLPs, RAPD Markers, and Isozymes for Diversity Assessment of Garlic and Detection of Putative Duplicates in Germplasm Collections
Polymorphic AFLPs are abundant in garlic and demonstrated genetic diversity among closely related clones which could not be differentiated with RAPD markers and isozymes, and are an additional tool for fingerprinting and detailed assessment of genetic relationships in garlic. Expand
Antioxidant phytochemicals and antioxidant capacity of biofortified carrots (Daucus carota L.) of various colors.
Purple-yellow carrots had the highest antioxidant capacity, followed by purple-orange carrots, and the other carrots did not significantly differ, which may help horticulturists develop carrots with higher antioxidant capacity. Expand
A high-quality carrot genome assembly provides new insights into carotenoid accumulation and asterid genome evolution
A high-quality chromosome-scale assembly and analysis of the carrot genome is reported, the first sequenced genome to include a comparative evolutionary analysis among members of the euasterid II clade, and a candidate gene, DCAR_032551, is identified that conditions carotenoid accumulation (Y) in carrot taproot and is coexpressed with several isoprenoid biosynthetic genes. Expand
De novo assembly and characterization of the carrot transcriptome reveals novel genes, new markers, and genetic diversity
This study confirmed the potential of short read platforms for de novo EST assembly and identification of genetic polymorphisms in carrot, and produced the first large-scale transcriptome of carrot, a species lacking genomic resources. Expand
Carotenoid profiles and consumer sensory evaluation of specialty carrots (Daucus carota, L.) of various colors.
With this information, carrot growers should be encouraged to cultivate specialty carrots to provide sources of both vitamin A precursors and phytochemicals. Expand
