Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum), one of the world’s major crops, is genetically very diverse. In order to select a representative sample of the worldwide wheat diversity, 3,942 accessions originating from 73 countries were analysed with a set of 38 genomic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. The number of alleles at each locus ranged from 7 to 45 with an(More)
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis was used to characterize barley germplasm genetic diversity. For the analysis 303 morphologically distinctive accessions were selected from the VIR germplasm collection, St. Petersburg, Russia and the MAFF Genebank, Tsukuba, Japan to represent the principal regions of barley cultivation. A total of 93(More)
N.I. Vavilov considered the territory of Afghanistan, the site of one of the first centers of farming, to be Central Asia’s hub of crop origin and diversity. This center also includes the hexaploid 42-chromosomal wheat with the AABBDD genomic formula. The agricultural regions of Afghanistan were surveyed repeatedly by scientific expeditions from various(More)
Landraces of wheat can serve as important potential sources for extending the genetic basis of selection cultivars. Analysis of microsatellites and typing of polymorphism in a representative sample of 347 genotypes, including landraces and selection cultivars, was performed using a set of 38 selected oligonucleotide primer pairs. Each genotype had a unique(More)
