Asian cotton (Gossypium arboreum L.) was once widely cultivated in China. It has also been a valuable source of genetic variation in modern cotton improvement. In this study, the genetic diversity of selected G. arboreum accessions collected from different regions of China was evaluated by microsatellite (simple sequence repeats, SSRs) analysis. Of the 358 microsatellite markers analyzed, 74 primer pairs detected 165 polymorphic DNA fragments among 39 G. arboreum accessions examined. Twelve… CONTINUE READING
