New microsatellite markers developed from reported Ipomoea trifida sequences and their application to sweetpotato and its related wild species

Ipomoea trifida belongs to the family Convolvulaceae and is closely related to sweetpotato. In this study, we reported the microsatellites in I. trifida sequence database, and tested their transferability and polymorphisms for both sweetpotato and its related wild species. In the DNA database, 1425 sequences were registered for I. trifida. …

Characterization and development of EST-derived SSR markers in cultivated sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas)

Background: Currently there exists a limited availability of genetic marker resources in sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas), which is hindering genetic research in this species. It is necessary to develop more molecular markers for potential use in sweetpotato genetic research. With the newly developed next generation sequencing technology, large amount of transcribed …
