Development of genomic simple sequence repeat markers in opium poppy by next-generation sequencing
Opium poppy (Papaver somniferum L.) is an important pharmaceutical crop with very few genetic marker resources. To expand these resources, we sequenced genomic DNA using pyrosequencing technology and examined the DNA ...
Morphological and molecular diversity in Turkish sesame germplasm and core set selection
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
The conservation of plant germplasm is essential to ensure future breeding gains and crop bio-diversity. To be truly useful, such germplasm must be characterized for morphological traits and genetic diversity. In this work, ...
Development of EST-SSR markers for diversity and breeding studies in opium poppy
All publicly available opium poppy expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences, totalling 20 885, were assembled into unigenes and examined for simple sequence repeats (SSRs). Nearly 19% of the 14 957 unigenes contained SSRs ...
