Due to their long reproductive cycles and the time to expression of mature traits, marker-assisted selection is particularly attractive for tree breeding. In this review, we discuss different approaches used for developing markers and propose a method for application of markers in low linkage disequilibrium (LD) populations. Identification of useful markers for application in tree breeding is mainly based on two approaches, quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping and association genetic studies… CONTINUE READING
