Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) are a source of simple sequence repeats (SSRs) that can be used to develop molecular markers for genetic studies. The availability of ESTs for Quercus robur and Quercus petraea provided a unique opportunity to develop microsatellite markers to accelerate research aimed at studying adaptation of these long-lived species to(More)
Microsatellites or simple sequence repeats (SSRs) in expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are useful resources for genome analysis because of their abundance, functionality and polymorphism. The advent of commercial second generation sequencing machines has lead to new strategies for developing EST-SSR markers, necessitating the development of bioinformatic(More)

We examined genetic differentiation among eight local populations of a metapopulation of Magnolia stellata using 10 nuclear and three chloroplast microsatellite (nSSR and cpSSR) markers and evaluated the influence of historical gene flow on population differentiation. The coefficient of genetic differentiation among populations for nSSR (F(ST) = 0.053) was(More)
Genetic diversity and differentiation were analyzed in 11 populations of Magnolia stellata (Sieb. and Zucc.) Maxim. (Magnoliaceae) in the Tokai district, Japan. Variation at four nuclear microsatellite (nSSR) loci was examined, three chloroplast microsatellite (cpSSR) markers were developed and 13 haplotypes identified. The 11 populations were divided into(More)
An overview of recent achievements and development of genomic resources in the Fagaceae is provided, with major emphasis on the genera Castanea and Quercus. The Fagaceae is a large plant family comprising more than 900 species belonging to 8–10 genera. Using a wide range of molecular markers, population genetics and gene diversity surveys were the focus of(More)
To evaluate the effects of flowering phenology on pollen flow distance and spatial genetic structure in a population of a bumblebee-pollinated herb, Primula sieboldii, we investigated the flowering phenology of 1712 flowers of 97 genets in a population in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, and constructed a mating model based on the observed mating pattern, which(More)
Many northern-hemisphere forests are dominated by oaks. These species extend over diverse environmental conditions and are thus interesting models for studies of plant adaptation and speciation. The genomic toolbox is an important asset for exploring the functional variation associated with natural selection. The assembly of previously available and newly(More)
To promote programs for the conservation and restoration of the endangered species Primula sieboldii, we examined genetic variation at eight microsatellite loci among and within 32 remnant wild populations throughout Japan. Total allelic diversity within a population was higher in larger populations, but not so after rarefaction adjustment. The positive(More)
Seed dispersal determines a plant’s reproductive success, range expansion, and population genetic structures. Camellia japonica, a common evergreen tree in Japan, has been the subject of recent genetic studies of population structure, but its mode of seed dispersal has been assumed, without detailed study, to be barochory. The morphological and(More)
