Genetic diversity revealed in the apomictic fruit species Garcinia mangostana L. (mangosteen)

  title={Genetic diversity revealed in the apomictic fruit species Garcinia mangostana L. (mangosteen)},
  author={Carl M. Ramage and Lillian Sando and Cameron Peace and Bernard J. Carroll and Roderick a. Drew},
The novel molecular marker technique Randomly Amplified DNA Fingerprinting (RAF)was used to survey genetic relationships between 37 accessions of the tropical fruit G. mangostana (mangosteen) and among 11 accessions from eight other Garcinia species. Although mangosteen is believed to reproduce exclusively through apomixis, our results show that considerable genetic diversity exists within G. mangostana and between other Garcinia species. Among the 37G. mangostana accessions examined, nine… CONTINUE READING
