Genetic diversity and relationships of sweetpotato and its wild relatives in Ipomoea series Batatas (Convolvulaceae) as revealed by inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) and restriction analysis of chloroplast DNA

Genetic diversity and relationships of 40 accessions of Ipomoea, representing ten species of series Batatas, were examined using ISSR markers and restriction-site variation in four non-coding regions of chloroplast DNA. A total of 2071 ISSR fragments were generated with 15 primers in these accessions and, on average, 52 bands per …

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 …
