Retrotransposon markers have been demonstrated to be powerful tools for investigating linkage, evolution and genetics diversity in plants. In the present study, we identified and cloned three full-size TRIM (terminal-repeat retrotransposon in miniature) group retrotransposon elements from apple (Malus domestica) cv. ‘Antonovka’, the first from the Rosaceae. To investigate their utility as markers, we designed primers to match the long terminal repeats (LTRs) of the apple TRIM sequences. We… CONTINUE READING
