The aim of this work was to provide a set of mitochondrial markers to reveal polymorphism and to study the maternal phylogeny in citrus. [] Key Method We first used 44 universal markers previously described in the literature: nine of these markers produced amplification products but only one revealed polymorphism in citrus.

Nuclear Species-Diagnostic SNP Markers Mined from 454 Amplicon Sequencing Reveal Admixture Genomic Structure of Modern Citrus Varieties

Inferred admixture structures were in agreement with previous hypotheses regarding theorigin of several secondary species and also revealed the probable origin of several acid citrus varieties.

Molecular tools for utilization of mitochondrial diversity in faba bean (Vicia faba)

A set of PCR primers for amplification of five introns in nad genes that are promising molecular tools for future phylogeographic and other studies in this species for which unambiguous data on wild ancestors, centre of origin and domestication are lacking are reported.

Development of DArT markers and evaluation of phylogenetic relationship of key Citrus species

The present study generated significant information about the genetic relationship between cultivated species and their putative wild progenitors, which suggested that the DArT markers system could be a powerful tool to study the genetic relationships of the genus Citrus.

Hybrid Origins of Citrus Varieties Inferred from DNA Marker Analysis of Nuclear and Organelle Genomes

The reconstructed genealogy identifies 12 types of varieties consisting of Kishu, kunenbo, yuzo, koji, sour orange, dancy, kobeni mikan, sweet orange, tachibana, Cleopatra, willowleaf mandarin, and pummelo, which have played pivotal roles in the occurrence of these indigenous varieties.

Maximum parsimony based resolution of inter-species phylogenetic relationships in Citrus L. (Rutaceae) using ITS of rDNA

It is postulate that the present investigation provides a more robust topology of Citrus and its close relatives, which can significantly prove as an additional support to resolve the phylogenetic relationships in Citrus genera.

The mitochondrial DNA markers for distinguishing Phalaenopsis species and revealing maternal phylogeny

A marker technology was applied to reveal the maternal inheritance mode of mtDNA in the moth orchids and phylogenetic analysis indicates that the mtDNA was nonmonophyletic below the Phalaenopsis genus.



A set of primers for analyzing chloroplast DNA diversity in Citrus and related genera.

The genetic relationships suggested by the unweighted pair group method based on arithmetic means (UPGMA) dendrogram were congruent with previous taxonomic investigations and revealed that all samples fell into seven major clusters, i.e., Citrus medica L., Poncirus, Fortunella,C.

Assessing genetic diversity and population structure in a citrus germplasm collection utilizing simple sequence repeat markers (SSRs)

The hypothesis that there are only a few naturally occurring species of Citrus and most other types of Citrim arose through various hybridization events between these naturally occurring forms is supported.

Phylogenetic relationships within the genus Citrus (Rutaceae) and related genera as revealed by RFLP and RAPD analysis

Relationships among 88 accessions representing 45 Citrus species, three man-made hybrids, and six related genera were examined for restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLP) and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis showed that several accessions were probably assigned to the wrong species.

A set of 35 consensus primer pairs amplifying genes and introns of plant mitochondrial DNA

24 new pairs of plant mitochondrial DNA primers that allow amplification of either introns, intergenic regions or genes are designed and tested along with 11 previously described mitochondrial primer pairs on 28 plant species representing 19 families of higher plants.

A set of universal primers for amplification of polymorphic non‐coding regions of mitochondrial and chloroplast DNA in plants

The genetic information present in the plant mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) is of great interest in phylogeny and in population genetics, largely because of the non-mendelian

Transferability of the EST-SSRs developed on Nules clementine (Citrus clementina Hort ex Tan) to other Citrus species and their effectiveness for genetic mapping

Five new EST-SSR markers were produced and were available for citrus genetic studies, and dinucleotide microsatellite markers were more polymorphic than trinucleotide ones, probably related to their distribution that was more often located in the 5' UnTranslated Region (UTR).


The genetic control of isozymes from Citrus and its near relatives was determined for three gene/ enzyme systems: glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase, phosphoglucose isomerase and phosphoglucose

Phylogenetic relationships among domesticated and wild species of Cucurbita (Cucurbitaceae) inferred from a mitochondrial gene: Implications for crop plant evolution and areas of origin

This study represents one of the first successful uses of a mtDNA gene in resolving inter- and intraspecific taxonomic relationships in Angiosperms and yields several important insights into the origins of domesticated Cucurbita.
