tRNALeu intron (UAA) of Ficus carica L.: genetic diversity and evolutionary patterns

G. Baraket, Abdelkrim, A. B., and Salhi-Hannachi, A., tRNALeu intron (UAA) of Ficus carica L.: genetic diversity and evolutionary patterns, vol. 14, pp. 3817-3832, 2015.

Cytoplasmic chloroplast DNA was explored to establish genetic relationships among Ficus carica cultivars and elucidate the molecular evolution of the species. The results suggest the occurrence of haplotype and nucleotide diversity. Conserved group I intron sequence motifs were detected and showed a common secondary structure, despite the presence of some mutations on their sequences. The neighbor-joining dendrogram showed a continuous diversity that characterizes local resources.

Genetic characterization of fig tree mutants with molecular markers

M. G. F. Rodrigues, Martins, A. B. G., Desidério, J. A., Bertoni, B. W., and Alves, M. C., Genetic characterization of fig tree mutants with molecular markers, vol. 11, pp. 1990-1996, 2012.

The fig (Ficus carica L.) is a fruit tree of great world importance and, therefore, the genetic improvement becomes an important field of research for better crops, being necessary to gather information on this species, mainly regarding its genetic variability so that appropriate propagation projects and management are made.
