Abstract The utility of 131 simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci to characterize and identify maize inbred lines, validate pedigree, and show associations among inbred lines was evaluated using a set of 58 inbred lines and four hybrids. Thirteen sets of inbred parent-progeny triplet pedigrees together with four hybrids and their parental lines were used to quantify incidences of scoring that departed from expectations based upon simple Mendelian inheritance. Results were compared to those obtained… Expand

Relationships among Early European Maize Inbreds: IV. Genetic Diversity Revealed with AFLP Markers and Comparison with RFLP, RAPD, and Pedigree Data
TLDR
Results from this study corroborate the usefulness of AFLP markers for assigning inbreds into heterotic groups and revealing pedigree relationships among lines. Expand
Genetic Diversity of Early Maturing Indian Maize (Zea mays L) Inbred Lines Revealed by SSR Markers
TLDR
SSR was found as a good tool for characterization of maize genotypes along with morphological markers for inbred lines and revealed 28 rare alleles among the total. Expand
Molecular mapping in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) using microsatellite markers. 1. Map construction and localization of loci showing distorted segregation.
TLDR
To characterize the level of polymorphism of microsatellite loci and construct a genetic map in tropical maize, two elite inbred lines were crossed to produce 400 F(2) individuals that were used as a mapping population. Expand
Comparative analysis of genetic diversity among the maize inbred lines (Zea mays L.) obtained by RAPD and SSR markers
TLDR
The RAPD and SSR markers were used to compare the genetic diversity among the 16 maize inbred lines to validate pedigree data and were effective to recognize the differences between the quantitative characters. Expand
Evaluation of the Numbers of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms Required to Measure Genetic Distance in Maize (Zea mays L.)
TLDR
It is found that, where SNP markers are selected to maintain high He and even genome coverage, then data from only 2 to 3 times the number of SNP marker sets are needed to reveal associations among lines compared with SSR markers. Expand
Utility of SSRs for Determining Genetic Similarities an Relationships in Maize Using an Agarose Gel System
TLDR
The utility of polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based markers such as SSRs for measuring genetic diversity, for assigning lines to heterotic groups and for genetic fingerprinting equals or exceeds that of RFLP markers, a property that may prove a valuable asset for a maize breeding program. Expand
Heterotic analysis using AFLP markers reveals moderate correlations between specific combining ability and genetic distance in maize inbred lines
TLDR
The AFLP markers have high polymorphisms and can be used to detect the genetic divergences, place maize inbred lines in different heterotic pools and identify the most positive SCAs and heterosis, but are still limited in fully predicting hybrid performance. Expand
Comparison of RAPD, RFLP, AFLP and SSR markers for diversity studies in tropical maize inbred lines
TLDR
AFLP seemed to be the best-suited molecular assay for fingerprinting and assessing genetic relationships among tropical maize inbred lines with high accuracy and all the markers showed that they could be useful in predicting single cross performance and heterosis in intrapopulation crosses for broad-based populations. Expand
GENETIC DIVERGENCE AND HETEROSIS AMONG MAIZE GENOTYPES AS INFERRED FROM DNA MICROSATELLITES
TLDR
Results of genotyping of maize inbreds with SSR markers established a benchmark on the genetic diversity existing across the in breds and hence these DNA marker profiles can be used as criteria for the prediction of heterosis in maize and also for hybrid identification. Expand
Genetic Characterization of CIMMYT Inbred Maize Lines and Open Pollinated Populations Using Large Scale Fingerprinting Methods
TLDR
Genetic diversity within each population was significantly higher than diversity between populations, indicating that the populations are heterogeneous at the molecular level and that CIMMYT breeders have successfully incorporated considerable genetic diversity into CIMmyT maize germplasm. Expand

Integration of Simple Sequence Repeat DNA Markers into a Soybean Linkage Map
TLDR
Results indicated a relatively limited amount of clustering of soybean SSR loci, and demonstrated that microsatellite genetic markers should provide an excellent complement to RFLP and RAPD markers for use in soybean molecular biology, genetics, and breeding research. Expand
Length polymorphisms of simple sequence repeat DNA in soybean.
TLDR
(CA)n SSRs with n of 15 or more are apparently much less common in soybean than in the human genome, and will probably not provide an abundant source of genetic markers in soy bean, but the apparent abundance of long (AT)n sequences should allow this SSR to serve as a source of highly polymorphic genetic markers.

Mapping maize microsatellites and polymerase chain reaction confirmation of the targeted repeats using a CT primer.
TLDR
It is concluded that microsatellites can be a valuable tool for maize mapping by verifying the existence of the original SSRs in the segregating PCR products and reamplifying these products. Expand
Ribosomal DNA spacer-length polymorphisms in barley: mendelian inheritance, chromosomal location, and population dynamics.
TLDR
It is concluded that the rDNA sl variants and/or associated loci are under selection in CCII, which demonstrates that Rrn1 and Rrn2 are useful as new genetic markers. Expand
Maize simple repetitive DNA sequences: abundance and allele variation.
TLDR
A database survey of 576 maize sequences from the GenBank and EMBL databases was made to determine the abundance of maize microsatellites and the three most abundant classes were (AG/CT), (CCT/GGA)n, and (CCG/GGC)n repeats. Expand

Incidence and origin of "null" alleles in the (AC)n microsatellite markers.
TLDR
The presence of a null allele may generate misleading data when individuals are haplotyped to determine the presence of linkage disequilibrium with a disease gene. Expand
Comparison of fluorescence-based semi-automated genotyping of multiple microsatellite loci with autoradiographic techniques.
TLDR
The accuracy of a fluorescence-based protocol that is adapted to the simultaneous analysis of up to 24 microsatellite loci per electrophoretic lane is compared with a benchmark radiolabeling method that depends on a known sequence ladder or amplified DNA from reference individuals for sizing by autoradiography.

Constraints on allele size at microsatellite loci: implications for genetic differentiation.
TLDR
It is shown that predictions based on microsatellite data are quite reliable in small populations, but that already in moderately sized populations the danger of misinterpretation is substantial. Expand

TLDR
Novel deconvolution methods for accurate genotyping that mathematically remove PCR stutter artifact from microsatellite markers are described, which overcome the manual interpretation bottleneck and thereby enable full automation of genetic map construction and use. Expand
