Barcode DNA length polymorphisms vs fatty acid profiling for adulteration detection in olive oil
The aim of this study was to compare the performance of a DNA-barcode assay with fatty acid profile analysis to authenticate the botanical origin of olive oil. To achieve this aim, we performed a PCR-capillary electrophoresis ...
Development of a SNP-based CAPS assay for the Me1 gene conferring resistance to root knot nematode in pepper
Root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are significant agricultural pests on many crops, including pepper (Capsicum annuum). Host plant resistance offers the most sustainable means of controlling this pest. A cluster of ...
Genome-wide SNP discovery and QTL mapping for fruit quality traits in inbred backcross lines (IBLs) of solanum pimpinellifolium using genotyping by sequencing
(BioMed Central, 2017-01)
Background: Solanum pimpinellifolium has high breeding potential for fruit quality traits and has been used as a donor in tomato breeding programs. Unlocking the genetic potential of S. pimpinellifolium requires high-throughput ...
Cultivar origin and admixture detection in Turkish olive oils by SNP-based CAPS assays
(American Chemical Society, 2015-03-04)
The aim of this study was to establish a DNA-based identification key to ascertain the cultivar origin of Turkish monovarietal olive oils. To reach this aim, we sequenced short fragments from five olive genes for SNP (single ...
Authentication of botanical origin in herbal teas by plastid noncoding DNA length polymorphisms
(American Chemical Society, 2015-07-01)
The aim of this study was to develop a DNA barcode assay to authenticate the botanical origin of herbal teas. To reach this aim, we tested the efficiency of a PCR-capillary electrophoresis (PCR-CE) approach on commercial ...
A primer to molecular phylogenetic analysis in plants
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-07)
Reconstructing a tree of life by inferring evolutionary history is an important focus of evolutionary biology. Phylogenetic reconstructions also provide useful information for a range of scientific disciplines such as ...
