The genus Corylus, a member of the birch family Betulaceae, includes several species that are widely distributed throughout temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. This study assesses the genetic diversity in 26 international cultivars and 32 accessions of Corylus avellana L. from Portugal: 13 wild genotypes and 19 landraces. The genetic relationships among the 58 hazelnuts (Corylus avellana L.) were analyzed using inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) and amplified fragment length… 
Molecular genetic diversity and association mapping of nut and kernel traits in Slovenian hazelnut (Corylus avellana) germplasm
This work is the first use of association mapping in hazelnut and has identified molecular markers associated with important quality parameters in this important nut crop.
Western European Wild and Landraces Hazelnuts Evaluated by SSR Markers
This study used 16 microsatellite markers to investigate genetic diversity in wild populations, Portuguese landraces, and reference cultivars, and found a high level of polymorphism in hazelnut, with a clear separation of the wild genotypes from the landrace andreference cultivars.
Molecular genetic diversity of the Turkish national hazelnut collection and selection of a core set
This study examined the molecular genetic diversity and population structure of 402 genotypes including 143 wild individuals, 239 landraces, and 20 cultivars from the Turkish national hazelnut collection using simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers.
Diversity Assessment and DNA-Based Fingerprinting of Sicilian Hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) Germplasm
The characterization of plant genetic resources is a precondition for genetic improvement and germplasm management. The increasing use of molecular markers for DNA-based genotype signature is crucial
Genetic variation in cultivated rhubarb (Rheum tanguticum Maxim. ex Balf.) and the relationship with their wild relatives in China revealed by ISSR markers
Results indicated that cultivated populations of R. tanguticum were not genetically differentiated from wild populations, indicating that a large number of wild genotypes were maintained in the cultivated gene pool.
Genetic diversity in wild populations of the restinga ecotype of the cashew (Anacardium occidentale) in coastal Piauí, Brazil
Within-population genetic diversity of wild plants varied considerably and was lower where extractive activities by local people are most intense (Labino population), underlines the importance of wild populations as in situ genetic reserves and the urgent need for further studies to support their conservation.
Analysis of European hazelnut (Corylus avellana) reveals loci for cultivar improvement and the effects of domestication and selection on nut and kernel traits
It is clear that while selection has successfully increased hazelnut fat content it has not impacted overall flavor, a much more complex trait, and it is hoped that some of the identified QTL will be useful for future breeding of hazelnuts for improved nut and kernel yield and quality.
Genetic diversity of eight millet genera assessed by using molecular and morphological markers
High molecular and morphological variability indicated that this collection includes rich and valuable plant materials for millet breeding, as well as the close relatedness between the Eragrostis and Panicum genera.
Resolving the Speciation Patterns and Evolutionary History of the Intercontinental Disjunct Genus Corylus (Betulaceae) Using Genome-Wide SNPs
A molecular phylogenetic reconstruction of genus Corylus, which has a disjunct distribution between Eurasia and North America, indicates that recent common ancestor (MRCA) of Corylus occurred in late Eocene and subsequent rapid diversification began during Miocene.


Molecular and morphological diversity of on-farm hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) landraces from southern Europe and their role in the origin and diffusion of cultivated germplasm
Phenotypic variation in nut and husk traits is described and genetic relationships using ten simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers among these landraces, 57 well-known references cultivars, and 19 wild accessions are investigated.
Genetic diversity revealed by morphological traits and ISSR markers in hazelnut germplasm from northern Spain
The results suggest that the local accessions are closely related to each other, but are relatively distant from the standard cultivars of eastern Spain, Italy and the USA.
Genetic relationship between cultivated and wild hazelnuts (Corylus avellana L.) collected in northern Spain
The results indicate that hazelnuts in northern Spain contain a group of accessions clearly differentiated within the Spanish–Italian gene pool, a group with intermediate forms probably derived from hybridization and accessions probably derived through exchange with other geographical areas, especially north-eastern Spain.
Genetic variation of chloroplast and nuclear markers in natural populations of hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) in Germany
While chloroplast markers were able to clearly distinguish only the Hungarian population, the nuclear markers revealed clear spatial genetic structures and the correlations between geographic and genetic distance was high for AFLPs, which showed the best ability to differentiate between populations.
Characterization of European hazelnut (Corylus avellana) cultivars using SSR markers
21 pairs of simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers were used to investigate genetic diversity in 270 clonal accessions of European hazelnut representing a wide geographic range and revealed four major geographical groups: Central European, Black Sea, English and Spanish-Italian.
Genetic Characterization of Hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) Cultivars from Turkey Using Molecular Markers
The genetic relationships among18 Turkish hazelnut cultivars were investigated using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA, intersimple sequence repeat (ISSR), and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers, which generated a total of 434 polymorphic marker loci.
Development of microsatellite marker loci for European hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) from ISSR fragments
Polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for European hazelnut from the sequences of inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) fragments and flanking regions using a GA-enriched library and 72 new marker loci were characterized using 50 diverse hazelnuts.
AFLP analysis of genetic variation within the two economically important Anatolian grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) varietal groups.
The unweighted pair-group method with arthimetic averaging (UPGMA) cluster analysis and principal coordinate analysis (PCA) conducted on polymorphic AFLP markers showed that both varietal groups contain a number of synonymous genotypes as well as homony mous (genetically different genotypes known by the same name) accessions.
