A phylogenetic analysis was conducted on 34 alleles of 2.5 kb sized stearoyl-ACP desaturase II (sad2), obtained from 30 accessions of cultivated and pale flax (Linum spp.), to elucidate the history of flax domestication. The analysis supports a single domestication origin for extant cultivated flax. The phylogenetic evidence indicates that flax was first domesticated for oil, rather than fibre. The genetic diversity of the sad2 locus in cultivated flax is low when compared to that of the pale… Expand
Genetic evidence for early flax domestication with capsular dehiscence

TLDR
Findings strongly suggest that capsular dehiscence was among the first flax traits modified by human after initial domestication, reflecting the importance that reducing capsularDehiscent likely played in early flax domestication. Expand
Genetic diversity of cultivated flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) and its wild progenitor pale flax (Linum bienne Mill.) as revealed by ISSR markers
TLDR
Pale flax displayed more ISSR variation than landraces and dehiscent type, but less than winter type, of cultivated flax, while genetic distances among the pale flax accessions were significantly associated with their geographic distances and elevation differences. Expand
Population-based resequencing revealed an ancestral winter group of cultivated flax: implication for flax domestication processes

  • Ecology and evolution
  • 2012
TLDR
The genetic relationships of 48 Linum samples representing pale flax and four trait-specific groups of cultivated flax are assessed through population-based resequencing at 24 genomic regions, and revealed a winter group of cultivated Flax that displayed close relatedness to its progenitor, paleflax. Expand
The potential of pale flax as a source of useful genetic variation for cultivated flax revealed through molecular diversity and association analyses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that pale flax is a potential source of novel variation to improve multiple traits in cultivated flax and that association mapping is a suitable approach to screening pale Flax germplasm to identify favorable quantitative trait locus alleles. Expand
Locus-specific view of flax domestication history
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the sad2 locus in 43 pale and 70 cultivated flax accessions established a complex domestication history for flax that has not been observed previously, and supports multiple paths of flax domestication for oil-associated traits before selection of the other domestication- associated traits of seed dispersal loss and fiber production.

Genetic diversity of cultivated flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) germplasm assessed by retrotransposon-based markers
TLDR
Findings provide a basis for better flax germplasm management, core collection establishment, and exploration of diversity in breeding, as well as for exploration of the role of retrotransposons in flax genome dynamics. Expand

Summary Flax has been cultivated for its oil and fiber for thousands of years. However, it remains unclear how the modifications of agronomic traits occurred on the genetic level during flaxExpand
Genetic diversity analysis of a flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) global collection
TLDR
To maximize genetic gain, hybridization between NDSU stock (P5 and Asian individuals (P6) are potentially the best option as genetic differentiation between them is highest (Fst’s> 0.50). Expand
Potential Hybridization of Flax with Weedy and Wild Relatives: An Avenue for Movement of Engineered Genes?
TLDR
Gen gene introgression from transgenic fl ax to wild rela- tives is possible in several species native to North America, depending on species distribution, sympatry, concurrent fl owering, ploidy level, and sexual compatibility. Expand
Variation in phenotypic characters of pale flax (Linum bienne Mill.) from Turkey
TLDR
Pale flax displayed larger variation in vegetative plant parts and growth habit than the cultivated flax and more heterogeneity within accessions, and a higher degree of variation was observed in many generative parts such as the flower characters than in the capsule and seed characters. Expand

RAPD analysis of genetic relationships of seven flax species in the genus Linum L
TLDR
Genotyped 12 flax accessionsrepresenting seven flax species in the genus Linum with 527 RAPD loci from 29 informative RAPD primers and analyzed their genetic relationships with simple matching, Dice's and Jaccard's similarity coefficients. Expand
Variation of cultivated flax (Linum usitatissimum L. subsp.usitatissimum) and its wild progenitor pale flax (subsp.angustifolium (Huds.) Thell.)
TLDR
Range of variation, genetically based variation, heritability and correlation of several characters are considered, especially with respect to the influence of domestication, and cultivated flax shows higher variation in the characters of generative plant parts, while pale flax varies more in the vegetative parts of the plant. Expand
Genetic diversity within a range of cultivars and landraces of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) as revealed by RAPDs
TLDR
RAPDvariation was generally low and more variation was detected among, than within, the investigated flax accessions, and a trend was observed that the rate of loss in genetic variation in Canadian flax breeding programs over the last fifty years was approximately two variable loci per 100 lociper 10 years.

Geographic Patterns of RAPD Variation in Cultivated Flax
TLDR
The findings of this study are significant for understanding flax domestication and also are useful in classifying intraspecific diversity of cultivated flax, establishing a core subset of the flax collection, and exploring new sources of genes for flax improvement. Expand

TLDR
As further tested on a subset of 17 morphologically very similar varieties, AFLP marker data were able to reveal extra sources of genetic variation, which can be exploited in plant variety testing as an additional tool for determining the distinctness of new varieties that are morphologically difficult to differentiate.
