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. …

Genomic Structure and the Gene Flow in Sweetpotato and and Related Species

This presentation consists of three points. The first point is that the cytogenetical study provides evidence of autoploidy of sweetpotato and the wild polyploids in the Ipomoea trifida complex. The second point concerns the feasibility of the gene flow in a circulationg system among sweet potato and its wild relatives. …
