SSR fingerprinting of a German Rubus collection and pedigree based evaluation on trueness-to-type

Eighty-two genotypes of Rubus available in germplasm collections, nurseries and home gardens were collected and evaluated using a set of 16 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers to estimate the level of genetic diversity and relatedness of the germplasm and for testing them on trueness-to-type. Each of the 16 SSRs was successful in amplifying alleles from… CONTINUE READING
