Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) was originally domesticated in tropical America. The sweetpotato gene bank maintained at CIP now contains 5526 cultivated accessions from 57 countries, of which 2589 are from Latin America. Understanding the diversity in the distribution of this germplasm is essential for its rational management and use. In the present study, we analyzed a group of sweetpotato varieties from Latin America using simple-sequence repeat (SSR) markers. Twelve SSR primer pairs… CONTINUE READING
