Congruence of random amplification of polymorphic deoxyribonucleic acid (RAPD) and simple sequence repeats (SSR) markers in genetic characterization of willow (Salix spp.)


Willow (Salix spp.) includes closely related dioecious polyploid species, which are obligate outcrosses. Natural populations of willows and their hybrids are represented by a mixture of highly heterozygous genotypes sharing a common gene pool. Random amplified polymorphism DNAs (RAPD) and microsatellites (simple sequence repeats; SSRs) are useful methods… (More)
