In this study, gene diversity and genetic relationships among 30 genotypes of genus Hordeum from Kerman province (Iran) were assessed using 10 simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers. Seven of these markers were highly polymorphic. A total of 96 alleles were detected. The number of alleles per microsatellite marker varied from 2 to 18. Except for Bmag0603, HVM36 and HvWAXY4, all the other markers showed on average, a high value of gene diversity ranging from 0.68 to 0.89. Primer GMS003 and GMS056…

Detection of Genetic Polymorphism in Seven Barley Hordeum vulgare L. Varieties Using SSR

Investigation of varieties planted to determine the degree of genetic similarity using SSR-technique (Simple Sequence Repeats) revealed that all primers showed polymorphism among the evaluated varieties, except Bmag0385.

Analysis of the Genetic Structure of a Barley Collection Using DNA Diversity Array Technology (DArT)

The results show that the level of genetic diversity has not changed substantially over time, but significant shifts in allelic frequency have occurred and clearly demonstrated the impact of breeding practices on the diversity of Czech spring malting barley cultivars over time.

Taxonomic revision of genus Hordeum L. (Gramineae) in Egypt

The results revealed that unweighted pair group method with arithmetic mean (UPGMA) dendrogram showed a considerable degree of dissimilarity among the studied Hordeum taxa and separated the two subspecies of H. murinuminto different species namely  H. leporinum and H. glaucum.

Taxonomic revision of genus Hordeum L

This study was conducted to revise the taxonomic identity and clarify interand intra-specific relationships among the studied wild and cultivated Hordeum taxa in Egypt. The studied taxa included




Comparison of samples from different grape growing regions of Iran and Europe based on various parameters using allelic data revealed similar level of genetic variation, however, no difference was observed between the Iranian and European groups.

Phyletic relationships within the genus Hordeum using PCR-based markers

Data obtained from PCO analysis are in complete agreement with taxonomic classifications proposed previously, which were comparisons of numerous morphological, cytological and reproductive characters.

The use of microsatellite markers for detection of genetic diversity in barley populations

The high degree of polymorphisms of microsatellite markers allows a rapid and efficient identification of barley genotypes and helps to estimate the genetic diversity among 163 barley genotype chosen from the collection of the IPK Genebank, Germany.

Identification of polymorphic, conserved simple sequence repeats (SSRs) in cultivated Brassica species

The identification and characterization of SSRs that are conserved in Brassica napus L. napus and its putative progenitors are reported on and single-reaction, multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with these SSRs is possible.

Microsatellites and RFLP probes from maize are efficient sources of molecular markers for the biomass energy crop Miscanthus

The high transferability of microsatellite markers from maize will enhance the power and resolution of genome analysis in Miscanthus, suggesting collinearity.

Phylogenetic analysis of the genus Hordeum using repetitive DNA sequences

A hypothesis concerning the possible origin and phylogeny of the polyploid barley species H. bulbosum is presented, which supports previous molecular studies of barley species where the unique position of H. bulbsum has been pointed out.

Abundance, variability and chromosomal location of microsatellites in wheat

It was found that wheat microsatellites are relatively long containing up to 40 dinucleotide repeats, and more variation was detected with the micros satellite markers than with RFLP markers with, on average, 4.6 different alleles per microsatellite.

Microsatellites in Malus X domestica (apple): abundance, polymorphism and cultivar identification

Abstract Screening of an apple genomic library with (GA)15 and (GT)15 probes demonstrated that these repeats are abundant, occurring about every 120 and 190 kb, respectively. Microsatellites isolated

RAPD characterization of Brazilian barley (Hordeum vulgare ssp. vulgare) varieties

Thirteen varieties of Brazilian barley selected for malting qualities were analysed by RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA), and many bands or combinations of bands which were responsible for the differentiation of all varieties were detected.

The use of microsatellite DNA markers for soybean genotype identification

SSR markers provide an excellent complement to the conventional markers that are currently used to characterize soybean genotypes and are much higher than soybean gene diversity values obtained using RFLP markers, and are similar to the average values obtained for human microsatellite markers.
