Recent phylogenetic studies on Sisyrinchium strongly suggest that species classified in section Hydastylus and section Viperella belong to a single group of plants in recent adaptive radiation (Clade IV). These species neither present clear morphological differentiation among them nor show clear identification using DNA barcode markers. Thus, the main goal of this study was to develop a set of polymorphic microsatellite markers compatible for representative species of both sections to ensure…

Cross genera transferability of microsatellite markers from other members of family Bignoniaceae to Tecomella undulata (Sm.) Seem

The present study can enrich the genomic background of T. undulata by identifying suitable polymorphic markers from confamiliar species that can be applied for genetic diversity studies, mapping of QTLs and cultivar identification as well.

Cross-genera SSR transferability in cacti revealed by a case study using Cereus (Cereeae, Cactaceae)

The amount of genetic variation found indicates that the transferred SSR markers might be useful in large-scale population studies within the genus Cereus, indicating each population as a cohesive genetic cluster.

Development and characterization of microsatellite markers for endangered species Stipa pennata (Poaceae) and their usefulness in intraspecific delimitation

The results confirm that three of four studied morphotypes are genetically distinct, and the microsatellite markers developed here will be useful for evaluating levels of genetic diversity and differentiation, to study gene flow, population dynamics and in future conservation studies.



Development and characterization of nine microsatellite loci for Sisyrinchium micranthum (Iridaceae).

These species-specific DNA markers may be useful for further investigations of the involved polyploidization process and the population genetics of S. micranthum.

Cytogenetic and molecular characterization of morphologically variable Sisyrinchium micranthum (Iridaceae) in southern Brazil

Molecular and cytogenetic analyses indicate that some S. micranthum accessions may have more than one ploidy, and all morphological types showed regular meiotic behaviour and high meiotic index values and pollen viability.

Species discrimination in Sisyrinchium (Iridaceae): assessment of DNA barcodes in a taxonomically challenging genus

The study illustrates the difficulties for DNA barcoding to identify species in evolutionary complex lineages by testing the DNA barcode paradigm among the genera of the tribe Sisyrinchieae (Iridoideae), with the best taxonomic resolution obtained with Bayesian inference.

Phylogeny of the New World Genus Sisyrinchium (Iridaceae) Based on Analyses of Plastid and Nuclear DNA Sequence Data

The genus Sisyrinchium is monophyletic and is sister to Olsynium, with eight major clades, which correspond to named sections or are given informal clade names.

Evolution of oil-producing trichomes in Sisyrinchium (Iridaceae): insights from the first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the genus.

The distribution of oil-flower species across the phylogenetic trees suggests that oil-producing trichomes may have played a key role in the diversification of the genus, a hypothesis that requires future testing.

Biosystematics of Sisyrinchium section Bermudiana (Iridaceae) of the Rocky Mountains

A biosystematic study utilizing morphology, cytology, analysis of breeding systems, and hybridization was undertaken to resolve the taxonomy of Rocky Mountain populations of Sisyrinchium.

A biosystematic study of Pacific Northwestern blue-eyed grasses (Sisyrinchium, Iridaceae)

Information gained from cytological analysis, breeding systems, ecology, distribution, and morphological studies substantiates the recognition of each genetically compatible group at the specific level, including the new species, S. hitchcockii, from southern Oregon.

Natural hybridization and flower color inheritance in Sisyrinchium rosulatum bickn.

Plants showing intermediate features between Sisyrinchium rosulatum BICKN. and a pale-purple flowered race (L-race) occur on the university campus of the authors. Based on morphological and

Computational and experimental analysis of microsatellites in rice (Oryza sativa L.): frequency, length variation, transposon associations, and genetic marker potential.

A set of 200 Class I SSR markers was developed and integrated into the existing microsatellite map of rice, providing immediate links between the genetic, physical, and sequence-based maps.

atetra, a new software program to analyse tetraploid microsatellite data: comparison with tetra and tetrasat

A new software program—atetra—which combines both the rigorous method of enumeration for small data sets and Monte Carlo simulations for large ones and which has the same precision than tetrasat, but is much faster, can handle an infinite number of partial heterozygotes and calculates more genetic variables.
