PREMISE OF THE STUDY The first microsatellite primers were developed for Solanum centrale, a native Australian species used in the bush foods industry. Existing markers developed for other Solanum species were also amplified. METHODS AND RESULTS Using an enrichment cloning protocol, seven novel markers were developed, and 48 existing markers from other Solanum species were tested, resulting in the characterization of a set of six highly polymorphic co-dominant loci for use in S. centrale… Expand
Development of SSR Markers for Genetic Analysis of Silverleaf Nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium) and Related Species
It is proved that the SSR markers that were developed could be useful for determining genetic diversity and structure among natural populations of silverleaf nightshade and identifying silverleaf morning glory and quena ecotypes. Expand
Using next-generation sequencing approaches to isolate simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci in the plant sciences.
In the future, NGS technologies will massively increase the number of SSRs and other genetic markers available to conduct genetic research in understudied but economically important crops such as cranberry. Expand
Horticultural development of bush food plants and rights of Indigenous people as traditional custodians – the Australian Bush Tomato (Solanum centrale) example: a review
The challenges that arise in the commercial exploitation of the Australian Bush Tomato, Solanum centrale, and its horticultural development, are reviewed and the approaches to their resolution are discussed. Expand


Gene-based microsatellite development for mapping and phylogeny studies in eggplant
A set of functional microsatellite (SSR) markers was informative for phylogenetic analysis and genetic mapping and have the potential to serve as perfect markers for genes determining variation in phenotype. Expand
Identification and characterization of microsatellites in eggplant
The potential of microsatellite markers for use in genetic studies in eggplant, Solanum melongena, has been evaluated and seven microsatellites showed polymorphism between parental lines of the mapping population and segregated in a codominant Mendelian manner. Expand
Assessment of genetic variation in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) inbred lines using SSR molecular markers.
The most similar inbred lines are from USA and Japan, both with determinate type, whereas the most different lines areFrom USA (Us-16) and Japan (Ja-2) with determinates and indeterminate growth habit, respectively. Expand
Development of a set of PCR-based anchor markers encompassing the tomato genome and evaluation of their usefulness for genetics and breeding experiments
Tomato and potato expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences contained in the solanaceae genomics network (SGN) database were screened for simple sequence repeat (SSR) motifs and Polymorphism information content values were highest among the wild accessions, with as many as 13 alleles detected per locus over all accessions.

genotype and genodive: two programs for the analysis of genetic diversity of asexual organisms
Two programs, GENOTYPE and GENODIVE, developed for analyses of clonal diversity in asexually reproducing organisms, show that genotype can be used for detecting genotyping errors in studies of sexual organisms. Expand
Universal linker and ligation procedures for construction of genomic DNA libraries enriched for microsatellites.
A blunt-end linker, named SNX for its restriction sites, that allows the use of combinations of restriction enzymes to digest the majority of genomic DNA into the 200-1000-bp range, resulting in representative small-insert libraries with a very high proportion of positive clones. Expand
Molecular Evolutionary Genetics
Recent developments of statistical methods in molecular phylogenetics are reviewed and it is shown that the mathematical foundations of these methods are not well established, but computer simulations and empirical data indicate that currently used methods produce reasonably good phylogenetic trees when a sufficiently large number of nucleotides or amino acids are used.
