Molecular markers were used to assess polymorphism between and within the genetic bases of coffee (i.e. Typica and Bourbon) spread from Yemen since the early 18th century that have given rise to most arabica cultivars grown world-wide. Eleven Coffea arabica accessions derived from the disseminated bases were evaluated by amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) using 37 primer combinations and simple-sequence repeats (SSRs) produced by six microsatellites. Four cultivars growing in Yemen… CONTINUE READING
