Electrophoretic variation as a tool for determining seed purity and for breeding hybrid varieties of Brassica oleracea


Isozyme phenotypes at four known genetic loci were determined in parental inbreds and corresponding F1 hybrid seed lots of four commercial broccoli, two cauliflower, and two cabbage varieties to determine seed purity. Most inbred lines were completely homozygous at all four loci but differed with respect to alleles at one to three loci. Several parental… (More)
