There is growing interest worldwide for Jatropha curcas because of the high oil content in the seeds, which can be used as base material for biodiesel production. This plant is native to Mexico (Mesoamerica) and can be found as toxic and non-toxic. However, there is little information on the genetic diversity of J. curcas. The purpose of this study was to analyze the genetic diversity of 64 accessions of J. curcas in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, and its relationship with the contents of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Genetic analysis of twenty two selected genotypes of Jatropha curcas L. (physic nut) from Africa, Asia and America, using SSR and AFLP markers

TLDR
The clustering of genotypes obtained with the neighbor-joining dendrogram and the PCoA analysis revealed the existence of a certain level of diversity that can be used by breeders.

WIDE GENETIC VARIABILITY WITHIN AND AMONG FAMILIES IN A GERMPLASM COLLECTION OF Jatropha curcas L. AS REVEALED BY MICROSATELLITE MARKERS

TLDR
This study was the first to portray the formation of four groups and detect high genetic variability using only accessions from outside the main center of diversity of the species and quantify genetic variability within and among 28 families of a genebank by means of microsatellite markers.

High SNP diversity in the non-toxic indigenous Jatropha curcas germplasm widens the potential of this upcoming major biofuel crop species.

TLDR
Conservation actions are urgently needed to preserve this non-toxic indigenous, relatively wild germplasm, having potential as a fuel feedstock, animal feed and food source among other uses.

SEED DIVERSITY IN NATIVE MEXICAN Jatropha curcas L. AND THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

TLDR
It was concluded that native Mexican provenances are valuable germplasm for genetic breeding programs with commercial purposes due to their high seed weight, oil and protein contents.

Antioxidant responses under jasmonic acid elicitation comprise enhanced production of flavonoids and anthocyanins in Jatropha curcas leaves

TLDR
Under JA elicitation, J. curcas plants increased antioxidant responses including flavonoid and anthocyanin production to maintain cell redox balance.

Genetic diversity in Jatropha curcas populations in the state of Chiapas, Mexico.

TLDR
Five populations of J. curcas were studied in the state of Chiapas, Mexico, using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers, finding that the greatest variation is within populations, followed by the variation among populations, and the PhiST value indicated moderate differentiation between populations.

Molecular characterization and genetic diversity analysis of Jatropha curcas L. in India using RAPD and AFLP analysis

TLDR
Low genetic diversity observed in J. curcas and the clustering pattern indicates that the distribution of species might have happened through anthropogenic activity and warrants the need for widening the genetic base, and will provide pavement for further intra-population studies on narrow geographical areas.

State of the art of genetic diversity research in Jatropha curcas

TLDR
The geographical origin of J. curcas is discussed, advances of research in the genetic diversity are summarized and contrasted, and proposed future research in this species include crop breeding to increase oil productivity.

Inter and intra-population variability of Jatropha curcas (L.) characterized by RAPD and ISSR markers and development of population-specific SCAR markers

TLDR
The study indicates an immediate need for widening the genetic base of J. curcas germplasm through introduction of accessions with broader geographical background through identification of population-specific markers in genotyping.

SSR and AFLP Markers Reveal Low Genetic Diversity in the Biofuel Plant Jatropha curcas in China

TLDR
The clustering of genotypes based on the AFLP markers shows that the genetic diversity of J. curcas in Guizhou was notably different from the other samples, and this collection has not been characterized using molecular techniques associated with germplasm management and utilization.

Population genetic structure and genetic diversity of Jatropha curcas germplasm as investigated by 5′-anchored simple sequence repeat primers

TLDR
This study provides a basis for breeders on selection of parental material to maximize genetic polymorphism in J. curcas breeding programs, and indicates an absence of subpopulation structure among neighboring regions may be caused by exchanging germplasm with vegetative propagation.

Isolation of novel microsatellites from Jatropha curcas L. and their cross‐species amplification

TLDR
Of the 12 loci isolated from J. curcas, five showed significant deviation from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium, but there was no significant linkage disequilibrium detected between any of the loci.

Genetic diversity among Jatropha species as revealed by RAPD markers

TLDR
The overall grouping pattern of clustering corresponds well with principal component analysis confirming patterns of genetic diversity observed among the species and provides valid guidelines for collection, conservation and characterization of Jatropha genetic resources.
