The Kayabi Indians who inhabit the Xingu Indigenous Park, located in West Central Brazil, have grown and managed peanuts for a long time. A great number of landraces are being maintained by these tribes and some of this germplasm has morphological traits that exceed the variation described in the taxonomic literature. Here, we analyzed the genetic variability of these landraces using a set of microsatellite markers. The analysis showed that, in general, the indigenous samples grouped according… CONTINUE READING
