Genetic Diversity and Core Collection for Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Cultivars from Cameroon as Revealed by SSR Markers

Twelve pairs of SSR markers were used to evaluate the genetic diversity of 138 accessions of potato cultivars from the Western Highlands region of Cameroon. The average Polymorphism information content (PIC) value (0.74) and number of alleles (7.08) indicated a high genetic diversity of the potato cultivars tested. Analysis of molecular variance revealed… CONTINUE READING
