Exploiting EST databases for the development and characterization of gene-derived SSR-markers in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Abstract.A software tool was developed for the identification of simple sequence repeats (SSRs) in a barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) EST (expressed sequence tag) database comprising 24,595 sequences. InExpand

Molecular markers and their applications in wheat breeding
In recent years, considerable emphasis has been placed on the development of molecular markers to be used for a variety of objectives. This review attempts to give an account of different molecularExpand

Recent history of artificial outcrossing facilitates whole-genome association mapping in elite inbred crop varieties
Genomewide association studies depend on the extent of linkage disequilibrium (LD), the number and distribution of markers, and the underlying structure in populations under study. OutbreedingExpand

Identification, characterization and utilization of EST-derived genic microsatellite markers for genome analyses of coffee and related species
Genic microsatellites or EST–SSRs derived from expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are desired because these are inexpensive to develop, represent transcribed genes, and often a putative function can beExpand

Draft genome sequence of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan), an orphan legume crop of resource-poor farmers
Pigeonpea is an important legume food crop grown primarily by smallholder farmers in many semi-arid tropical regions of the world. We used the Illumina next-generation sequencing platform to generateExpand

AFLP-based molecular characterization of an elite germplasm collection of Jatropha curcas L., a biofuel plant.
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) was employed to assess the diversity in the elite germplasm collection of Jatropha curcas, which has gained tremendous significance as a biofuel plant inExpand

The use of microsatellites for detecting DNA polymorphism, genotype identification and genetic diversity in wheat
Abstract A set of 20 wheat microsatellite markers was used with 55 elite wheat genotypes to examine their utility (1) in detecting DNA polymorphism, (2)in the identifying genotypes and (3) inExpand

The genome sequences of Arachis duranensis and Arachis ipaensis, the diploid ancestors of cultivated peanut
Cultivated peanut (Arachis hypogaea) is an allotetraploid with closely related subgenomes of a total size of ∼2.7 Gb. This makes the assembly of chromosomal pseudomolecules very challenging. As aExpand
