The availability of suitable genetic markers is essential to efficiently select and breed apple varieties of high quality and with multiple disease resistances. Microsatellites (simple sequence repeats, SSR) are very useful in this respect since they are codominant, highly polymorphic, abundant and reliably reproducible. Over 140 new SSR markers have been developed in apple and tested on a panel of 7 cultivars and 1 breeding selection. Their high level of polymorphism is expressed with an… CONTINUE READING
