FINGERPRINTING OF SWEETPOTATO GERMPLASM USING AFLP, RAPD, AND SAMPL ANALYSIS

The ability to improve productivity and agronomic traits of sweetpotato through breeding programs depends on assessing the genetic variation of their germplasm and genetic relationship to other genotypes. In addition, studying genetic diversity supports the conservation of genetic resources. In this study, three different DNA-based markers, random amplification of polymorphic …

Highly polymorphic AFLP markers as a complementary tool to ITS sequences in assessing genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships of sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) and its wild relatives

Comparative analyses of genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships of sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) and its wild relatives in Ipomoea series Batatas were conducted using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and sequence data from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the ribosomal DNA. Low ITS divergence among thirteen species …
