UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Genic microsatellites or simple sequence repeat (genic-SSR) markers were developed in boxwood (Buxus taxa) for genetic diversity analysis, identification of taxa, and to facilitate breeding. • METHODS AND RESULTS cDNA libraries were developed from mRNA extracted from leaves of Buxus sempervirens 'Vardar Valley' and(More)
Boxwoods (Buxus L., Buxaceae) are popular woody landscape shrubs grown for their diverse forms and broad-leaved evergreen foliage. We used genic simple sequence repeat (genic-SSR) markers to assess genetic diversity and relatedness of 275 accessions from the National Boxwood Collection at the U.S. National Arboretum. Flow cytometry was conducted to(More)
