X. Y. Liang, Zhang, X. Q., Bai, S. Q., Huang, L. K., Luo, X. M., Ji, Y., and Jiang, L. F., Genetic diversity and relationship of chicory (Cichorium intybus L.) using sequence-related amplified polymorphism markers, vol. 13, pp. 7736-7746, 2014.

Chicory is a crop with economically important roles and is cultivated worldwide. The genetic diversity and relationship of 80 accessions of chicories and endives were evaluated by sequence-related amplified polymorphism (SRAP) markers to provide a theoretical basis for future breeding programs in China. The polymorphic rate was 96.83%, and the average polymorphic information content was 0.323, suggesting the rich genetic diversity of chicory. The genetic diversity degree of chicory was higher (GS = 0.677) than that of endive (GS = 0.701).
