Development and characterization of microsatellite loci in Brasenia schreberi (Cabombaceae) based on the next-generation sequencing

H. Liu, Long, Z. C., Li, L. N., Wang, Q. F., Chen, J. M., Liao, K., Liu, H., Long, Z. C., Li, L. N., Wang, Q. F., Chen, J. M., Liao, K., Liu, H., Long, Z. C., Li, L. N., Wang, Q. F., Chen, J. M., and Liao, K., Development and characterization of microsatellite loci in Brasenia schreberi (Cabombaceae) based on the next-generation sequencing, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

To understand genetic variability of the endangered aquatic herb Brasenia schreberi (Cabombaceae), we describe 31 microsatellite markers obtained using next-generation sequencing. A total of 24 individuals from the population of Jackson Lake, USA, were genotyped for each marker. Twenty-eight markers were polymorphic. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 1 to 9; the observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0 to 1 and from 0 to 0.751, respectively. These markers should be useful tools for genetic variation and conservation studies of B.

Population genetic structure in Phyla scaberrima from Mexico and Colombia assessed by AFLP markers and implications for conservation

L. G. Androcioli, Ruas, E. A., Rodrigues, L. A., Ruas, C. F., Perilla, H. E. R., and Ruas, P. M., Population genetic structure in Phyla scaberrima from Mexico and Colombia assessed by AFLP markers and implications for conservation, vol. 14, pp. 15697-15704, 2015.

Phyla scaberrima (Verbenaceae) is a herbaceous peren­nial species that is distributed from Mexico (center of origin) to Colom­bia, growing in forest and swamp edges or grasslands from sea level up to an altitude of 1800 m. The chemical properties and uses in popular medicine have drastically affected the population size of this species. In this study, we investigated genetic variability in populations of P. scaberrima using AFLP markers.

Genetic diversity of wild Prunus cerasifera Ehrhart (wild cherry plum) in China revealed by simple-sequence repeat markers

Y. Zhao, Li, Y., Liu, Y., and Yang, Y. F., Genetic diversity of wild Prunus cerasifera Ehrhart (wild cherry plum) in China revealed by simple-sequence repeat markers, vol. 14, pp. 8407-8413, 2015.

Simple-sequence repeat (SSR) markers were employed to assess the genetic diversity of wild Prunus cerasifera Ehrhart (wild cherry plum) in China. Fourteen SSR primer pairs generated a total of 94 alleles (90 were polymorphic, accounting for 95.74%), with a mean of 6.71 alleles per locus. The number of alleles detected at each locus ranged from 2 at BPPCT 028 to 13 at BPPCT 002, with an average of 6.71 alleles per locus.

Populations of Erythrina velutina Willd. at risk of extinction

M. F. V. Melo, Gonçalves, L. O., Rabbani, A. R. C., Álvares-Carvalho, S. V., Pinheiro, J. B., Zucchi, M. I., and Silva-Mann, R., Populations of Erythrina velutina Willd. at risk of extinction, vol. 14, pp. 10298-10307, 2015.

The goal of this study was to characterize the structure of two natural populations of the coral tree using RAPD and ISSR markers. The study evaluated all individuals in two different areas in the northeastern region of Brazil: the first was in the riparian area, 10 km x 100 m along the edge of the lower São Francisco River, and the second was in the municipality of Pinhão, in a semiarid region between the municipalities of Neópolis and Santana do São Francisco. We used all the coral trees present in those two areas (37 individuals).
