In silico mining for simple sequence repeat loci in a pineapple expressed sequence tag database and cross-species amplification of EST-SSR markers across Bromeliaceae
A collection of 5,659 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from pineapple [Ananas comosus (L.) Merr.] was screened for simple sequence repeats (EST-SSRs) with motif lengths between 1 and 6 bp. LowerExpand

Genetic variability in wild populations of Prunus divaricata Ledeb. in northern Iran evaluated by EST-SSR and genomic SSR marker analysis
A population genetic analysis based on eight genomic SSR markers and three EST-SSR (expressed sequence tags) markers developed in peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) and Japanese plum (Prunus salicinaExpand

Population genetic structure of the rock outcrop species Encholirium spectabile (Bromeliaceae): The role of pollination vs. seed dispersal and evolutionary implications.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Inselbergs are terrestrial, island-like rock outcrop environments that present a highly adapted flora. The epilithic bromeliad Encholirium spectabile is a dominant species onExpand

Development of microsatellite markers in Fosterella rusbyi (Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for Fosterella rusbyi (Bromeliaceae) to evaluate the population genetic structure and genetic diversity of natural populationsExpand

Reproduction biology and chloroplast inheritance in Bromeliaceae: a case study in Fosterella (Pitcairnioideae)
We applied a series of intra- and interspecific in situ cross-pollination experiments under greenhouse conditions to evaluate the breeding systems in four Fosterella species (Pitcairnioideae s.str.;Expand

Development of 15 nuclear microsatellite markers in the genus Dyckia (Pitcairnioideae; Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing
The genus Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) comprises 147 species that are distributed in Brazil and adjacent countries. Many species are rare and narrow endemics. We used 454 pyrosequencing to isolate 1,587Expand

A set of plastid microsatellite loci for the genus Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) derived from 454 pyrosequencing.
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Phylogeographical analyses of Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) suffer from low levels of sequence variation. Plastid microsatellite markers were developed to achieve aExpand

Mechanisms of Speciation in Southeast Asian Ant-Plants of the Genus Macaranga (Euphorbiaceae)
The palaeotropic genus Macaranga (Euphorbiaceae) is an excellent model system to analyze co-evolutionary processes associated with myrmecophytism, a mutualistic interaction between plants and ants.Expand

Development of 15 nuclear microsatellite markers in Deuterocohnia (Pitcairnioideae; Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing
Premise of the Study Microsatellite markers were developed in Deuterocohnia longipetala (Bromeliaceae) to investigate species and subspecies boundaries within the genus and the genetic diversity ofExpand
