Evaluating diversity among Kenyan sweet potato genotypes using morphological and SSR markers

  title={Evaluating diversity among Kenyan sweet potato genotypes using morphological and SSR markers},
  author={Hannah Karuri and E. M. Ateka and Ruth Lodenyi Amata and Aggrey Bernard Nyende and Anne W T Muigai and Evans Mwasame and S. T. Gichuki},
Genetic diversity of 89 sweet potato genotypes was evaluated using morphological and molecular markers. Eighteen aerial and sixteen storage root characters were used in the morphological characterization. Analysis of variance showed that all the characters evaluated were significantly different (P<0.01) between the genotypes. The dendrogram obtained using phenotypic characters separated the genotypes into two major clusters with a Euclidean distance ranging from 0.0 to 6.98. Twenty three unique…

Selection of Sweetpotato Parental Genotypes Using Simple Sequence Repeat Markers
The selected SSR markers were found to be highly polymorphic with high discriminatory power for genetic characterization studies and are useful genomic tool to complement phenotyping of sweetpotato genotypes.
Characterization of the genetic diversity of Uganda’s sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) germplasm using microsatellites markers
The presence of unique alleles in populations from various Uganda’s agro-ecological zones and other global regions, as well as the regional diversity patterns, suggest that efforts should be made to further collect and characterize the germplasm in more depth.
Evaluation of genetic and morphological distances between soybean (Glycine max L.) cultivars
Cluster analysis of soybean cultivars by morphological traits showed that ‘Abelina’ was the most distant from the group of investigated cultivars with a value of genetic distances ranged from 2.8 to 11.0.
Genetic and morphological diversity among sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L) Lam.) accessions from different geographical areas in Malawi
Malawian sweet potato landraces harbour considerably high morphological and genetic diversity warranting use in breeding programs, and cluster analysis indicated high variability among accessions at morphological (50% dissimilarity) and genetic (64% diss similarity) level.
Diversity analysis of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas [L.] Lam) germplasm from Burkina Faso using morphological and simple sequence repeats markers
Assessment of diversity among 112 sweet potato cultivars in Burkina Faso revealed high diversity with a coefficient of 0.73 using the phenotypic data, while moderate diversity was obtained using the SSR markers.
Analysis of diversity and genetic interactions of potato varieties (Solanum tuberosum L. ) based on morphological characteristics and SSR markers
The use of a complex of studies containing a description of morphological features and microsatellite markers is promising for identifying potato varieties, creating collections of well-known varieties and determining their differences.
Diversity Analysis of Sweet Potato Genetic Resources Using Morphological and Qualitative Traits and Molecular Markers
The combination of two different characterization methods, genetic markers and agronomic traits, was effective in differentiating or clustering the sweet potato genotypes, in agreement with their geographical origin or phenotypic descriptors.
Morphological and molecular characterization of Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) landraces using SSR markers
Wide genetic diversity among landraces showed wide genetic diversity providing scope for their improvement through hybridization and selection, as well as analysis of variance showed that all the characters evaluated were significantly different between the genotypes.
Assessment of Variability in Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) Germplasm Using Morphological and ISSR Markers
Fifty two accessions of sweet potato collected from eastern states of India and maintained in the National Active Germplasm Site at ICAR-CTCRI, along with two wild species Ipomoea triloba L. and
Diversity and relationships among morphological characters in the sweet potato collection of Cote D’Ivoire
The descriptive analyses revealed a substantial phenotypic variation within the sweet potato collection and the multiple correspondence analysis showed that 15 characters out of 27 were the most discriminant to explain the variation.


Association between genetic distances in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) as estimated by AFLP and morphological markers
It is evident that the combined analysis is not efficient when a very dissimilar number of markers are used in each isolated technique, therefore, to obtain a better knowledge of the degree of divergence among genotypes it is necessary to consider each analysis separately.
Assessing genetic diversity of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) cultivars from tropical America using AFLP
The hypothesis that Central America is the primary center of diversity and most likely the center of origin ofsweet potato is supported and Peru-Ecuador should be considered as a secondary center of sweet potato diversity.
AFLP‐Based Genetic Diversity Assessment among Wheat Cultivars from the Pacific Northwest
Cluster analysis, ordination analysis, and the analysis of molecular variance suggested genetic diversity among cultivars was hierarchically arranged as cultivars nested within market class, and market classes nested within growth habit.
Characterization of mandarin citrus germplasm from Southern Brazil by morphological and molecular analyses
The objective of this work was to characterize mandarin ( Citrus spp.) germplasm from Southern Brazil by morphological and molecular analyses. Thirty seven cultivars from 34 distinct mandarin
Microsatellite analysis of genetic diversity in sweetpotato varieties from Latin America.
The hypothesis that Mesoamerica is the primary center of diversity and most likely the center of origin of the sweetpotato is strongly supported, and Peru-Ecuador should be considered as a secondary center of sweetPotato diversity.
The comparison of RFLP, RAPD, AFLP and SSR (microsatellite) markers for germplasm analysis
A comparison of genetic similarity matrices revealed that, if the comparison involved both cultivated and wild soybean accessions, estimates based on RFLPs, RAPD, AFLPs and SSRs are highly correlated, indicating congruence between these assays.
DNA Marker-based Study of Genetic Relatedness in United States Sweetpotato Cultivars
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based DNA amplification fingerprinting (DAF) approach was used to investigate genetic relationships among 30 U.S. sweetpotato genotypes including heirloom cultivars and recent releases, and genetic relationships derived from DAF data appear to be consistent with available pedigree information.
Molecular diversity of a germplasm collection of squash (Cucurbita moschata) determined by SRAP and AFLP markers
Molecular analysis using AFLP and SRAP markers showed a genetic diversity concordant with the morphological variability of C. moschata, suggesting the existence of two independent domestications in both American areas, and/or introgressions from related species.
