Plant germplasm collections invariably contain varying levels of genetic redundancy, which hinders the efficient conservation and utilization of plant germplasm. Reduction of genetic redundancies is an essential step to improve the accuracy and efficiency of genebank management. The present study targeted the assessment of genetic redundancy and genetic structure in an international cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) collection maintained in Costa Rica. A total of 688 cacao accessions maintained in… CONTINUE READING
