A retrospective analysis of spring barley germplasm development from `foundation genotypes' to currently successful cultivars

Twenty-eight mapped barley SSRs were used to examine changes in the level and pattern of variability in northern European spring barley over time. Comparing the most recently introduced cultivars with a group of 19 landraces and key progenitors termed `foundation genotypes' we observed a reduction in the spectrum of alleles at 28 loci over time, and… CONTINUE READING
