  author={E. M{\aa}nsby and Oscar Diaz and Roland von Bothmer},
  journal={Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution},
To investigate the genetic diversity of Linum usitatissimumL. in Sweden, 18 accessions, including 13 cultivars and five landraces, were analysed. This study was based on genetic variation in three enzyme systems (i.e., PGD, GPI and MDH) by using horizontal starch gel electrophoresis. The total genetic diversity of the studied flax material was very high (H T= 0.62). Even though the highest genetic diversity lies within the accessions (G ST= 0.07), a clear differentiation between fibre and oil… CONTINUE READING
