Genetic Analysis of Sweetpotato and Wild Relatives using Inter-simple Sequence Repeats (ISSRs)

Inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) amplification was evaluates for its usefulness in generating DNA markers for sweetpotato and related wid species. ISSR markers were obtained through PCR amplification using simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers. Optimization of the reaction conditions was successfully achieved fro 24% out of 100 SSR primers screened. The …
