Characterization and genetic diversity of pepper (Capsicum spp) parents and interspecific hybrids
“Characterization and genetic diversity of pepper (Capsicum spp) parents and interspecific hybrids”, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.,
Pepper species exhibit broad genetic diversity, which enables their use in breeding programs. The objective of this study was to characterize the diversity between the parents of different species and their interspecific hybrids using morphological and molecular markers. The parents of Capsicum annuum (UFPB-01 and -137), C. baccatum (UFPB-72), and C. chinense (UFPB-128) and their interspecific hybrids (01x128, 72x128, and 137x128) were used for morphological and molecular characterization.
