Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is a staple food crop for millions of impoverished rural inhabitants of Andean South America where it has been cultivated for millennia. Interest in quinoa, due largely to its superior nutritional characteristics, is fuelling a growing export market and has led to an increased focus on genetic research and the development of quinoa breeding programmes throughout South America. The success of these breeding programmes will rely heavily on the development of… 
Assessment of genetic diversity patterns in Chilean quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) germplasm using multiplex fluorescent microsatellite markers
TLDR
The objective of this study was to characterize and quantify the genetic diversity within 28 Altiplano and 31 coastal Chilean accessions of quinoa using microsatellite markers and provides the quinoa scientific community with a new set of easy to use and highly informative genetic markers.
Elevated Genetic Diversity in an F2:6 Population of Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) Developed through an Inter-ecotype Cross
TLDR
The extended diversity regenerated among the 72 accessions was highlighted and helped to identify potentially adapted quinoa genotypes for production in the Moroccan coastal environment.
Comparative analysis of genetic and morphologic diversity among quinoa accessions (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) of the South of Chile and highland accessions

Molecular characterization of Ecuadorian quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) diversity: implications for conservation and breeding
TLDR
The results show that ancestral quinoa diversity in Ecuador has prevailed despite the introduction of commercial varieties, and should be preserved for future use in breeding programs.
Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Identification, Characterization, and Linkage Mapping in Quinoa
TLDR
The SNPs identified here represent important genomic tools needed in emerging plant breeding programs for advanced genetic analysis of agronomic traits in quinoa.
Genetic structure in cultivated quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.), a reflection of landscape structure in Northwest Argentina
TLDR
Results showed a great level of genetic diversity, differing from previous reports about the geographical distribution of quinoa variability, and an eastward decreasing genetic diversity gradient was found.
Simple sequence repeat marker development and genetic mapping in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.)
TLDR
The linkage map presented here is the first SSR-based map in quinoa and contains 275 markers, including 200 SSR, and will be particularly valuable for research in laboratories in Andean regions of South America.

Development and Use of Microsatellite Markers for Germplasm Characterization in Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.)
TLDR
These microsatellites markers are an ideal resource for use in managing quinoa germplasm, trait mapping and marker-assisted breeding strategies and the wide cross-species transportability of these markers may extend their value to research involving other Chenopodium species.
Sampling strategy for a core collection of Peruvian quinoa germplasm
TLDR
This paper describes the development of a core subset of the whole quinoa gene bank of the Universidad Nacional del Altiplano (UNAP), which contains chosen ecotypes or landraces that capture most of the genetic variability available in this Peruvian germplasm.
Genetic analysis of Indian aromatic and quality rice (Oryza sativa L.) germplasm using panels of fluorescently-labeled microsatellite markers
TLDR
The data suggest that there is scope for exploiting the genetic diversity of aromatic/quality rice germplasm available in India for national Basmati rice breeding programs and that the high-quality Indian aromatic and quality rice genotypes could be distinguished from both indica and japonica cultivars, and crossbred varieties could been distinguished from traditional Basmato rices.
Analysis of the wild potato germplasm of the series Acaulia with AFLPs: implications for ex situ conservation
TLDR
AFLP analysis appeared to be an efficient method to verify taxonomic classification and to identify redundancies in the wild germplasm of the series Acaulia, and no consistent relationship between geographic distance and genetic diversity was revealed.
Multivariate Analysis of Genetic Diversity of Bolivian Quinoa Germplasm
To determine the genetic diversity of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoaWilld.), the crop's morphological traits and agronomic performance were evaluated during 1992–1993 and 1993–1994, using germplasm
Genetic Redundancy and Diversity among ‘Orange’ Accessions in the U.S. National Sorghum Collection as Assessed with Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) Markers
TLDR
This study demonstrated that a limited number of SSR markers can be used in a cost-efficient manner to rapidly assess variation in accessions of Orange sorghum.
Microsatellite (SSR) markers reveal genetic identities, genetic diversity and relationships in a Malus×domestica borkh. core subset collection
TLDR
These SSR markers show great promise as tools for managing Malus ex situ germplasm collections as well as for collection and preservation strategies concerning wild Malus populations in situ.
Quinua biosystematics I: Domesticated populations
TLDR
The overall pattern of variation supports the ecotypic approach toward landrace classification of quinua, although congruence between ecological and morphogenetic variation is not complete.
Allotetraploid segregation for single-gene morphological characters in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa} Willd.)
TLDR
Allelic segregation analysis revealed a range of F1 and F2 ratios indicative of both disomic-digenic and tetrasomic inheritance in two of these traits, as well as distorted F2 ratio suggesting erratic multivalent formation at meiosis, consistent with allotetraploidy in quinoa.
The breeding system of Chenopodium quinoa I. Male sterility
TLDR
Genetical evidence adduced below suggests that Chenopodium quinoa, a minor economic plant of the high Andes, is an amphidiploid showing disomic inheritance, and may be thought of as the New World analogue of buckwheat, Fagopyrum.
