The amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) method was used to evaluate genetic diversity and to assess genetic relationships within the section Mentha in order to clarify the taxonomy of several interspecific mint hybrids with molecular markers. To this end, genetic diversity of 62 Mentha accessions from different geographic origins, representing five species and three hybrids, was assessed. Three EcoRI/MseI AFLP primer combinations generated an average of 40 AFLP markers per primer…

Assessment of the genetic diversity and relationships of a collection of Mentha spp. in Tunisia using morphological traits and ISSR markers

A high morphological and molecular diversity in the Tunisian accessions is shown and it is shown that combining morphologically and molecular data is crucial to a proper identification, allowing the correct use of these accessions in future breeding programmes.

Reassessment of Mentha Species from Kunhar River Catchment Using Morphological and Molecular Markers

High level of genetic diversity existed among the Mentha genotypes and variations among populations of M. royleana need further elaboration through additional marker assisted discrimination for establishing their taxonomic status.

Molecular Taxonomy Among Mentha spicata, Mentha longifolia and Ziziphora tenuior Populations using the RAPD Technique

Molecular analysis with RAPD markers stressed their ability for differentiation between families, genus, and species of living organisms particularly Mentha species and Ziziphora tenuior.

Estimation of Genetic Diversity in Genus Mentha Collected From Azad Jammu And Kashmir, Pakistan

Both morphological and molecular dendrogram determined considerable level of diversity among Mentha species, and specific primers and DNA chloroplast technology could be needed for further molecular analysis to refine the data more up to varietal level.

Using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) to unravel species relationships and delimitations in Minthostachys (Labiatae)

The amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) study presented in this paper supplements field and morphological studies within the framework of a taxonomic and systematic revision and is found to be unsuitable for the reconstruction of the phylogeny of Minthostachys.



Comparing AFLP, RAPD and RFLP markers for measuring genetic diversity in melon

Three different types of molecular markers, RAPD, AFLP and RFLP were used to measure genetic diversity among six genotypes of Cucumis melo L. showed the highest efficiency in detecting polymorphism.

AFLP-based genetic diversity assessment amongst agronomically important natural and some newly synthesized lines of Brassica juncea

Four primer pairs were found to be most informative, since these uniquely identified all the genotypes assayed, and could therefore be used as fingerprinting primers for varietal identification.

Use of random amplified polymorphic DNA markers for cultivar identification in mint

A potential lack of genetic diversity in mint cultivars grown for oil in the United States is indicated by the results of randomly amplified polymor- phic DNA (RAPD) analysis.

Amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLP) reveal details of polyploid evolution in Dactylorhiza (Orchidaceae).

The AFLP data support the general picture of polyploid evolution in Dactylorhiza, i.e., that allotetraploid derivatives have arisen repeatedly as a result of hybridization beween the two parental groups, and relationships among them were partly correlated to morphologically based entities, but also to geographic distribution.

Species relationships in Lactuca s.l. (Lactuceae, Asteraceae) inferred from AFLP fingerprints.

An AFLP data set comprising 95 accessions from 20 species of Lactuca s.l. (sensu lato) and related genera was generated using the primer combinations E35/M48 and E 35/M49, and it is postulated that these species are conspecific.

Comparative analysis of genetic similarity among maize inbred lines detected by RFLPs, RAPDs, SSRs, and AFLPs

Abstract DNA-based fingerprinting technologies have proven useful in genetic similarity studies. RFLP is still most commonly used in the estimation of genetic diversity in plant species, but the

Cytological Studies on Different Species of Mentha with Special Reference to the Occurrence of Chromosomal Biotypes

Early literature as well as the present records show that in species of this genus, a large number of chromosomal biotypes occur, and the importance of analysis of these biotypes from a cyto-ecological standpoint has been emphasized.

The comparison of RFLP, RAPD, AFLP and SSR (microsatellite) markers for germplasm analysis

A comparison of genetic similarity matrices revealed that, if the comparison involved both cultivated and wild soybean accessions, estimates based on RFLPs, RAPD, AFLPs and SSRs are highly correlated, indicating congruence between these assays.

Chromosome numbers in the genus Mentha L.

A critical review of the chromosome numbers of a range of taxa from both hemispheres are reported in the genus Mentha, with a discussion on probable basic numbers.

AFLP: a new technique for DNA fingerprinting.

The AFLP technique provides a novel and very powerful DNA fingerprinting technique for DNAs of any origin or complexity that allows the specific co-amplification of high numbers of restriction fragments.
