Methylation-sensitive RFLPs: characterisation of two oil palm markers showing somaclonal variation-associated polymorphism


The occurrence of "mantled" somaclonal variants (approx. 5%), which display alterations in floral organ structure, among populations of somatic embryo-derived oil palms (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) currently hampers any scaling-up of clonal plant micropropagation. As a first step towards the identification of abnormality-discriminating markers, we have… (More)
