Molecular characterization of the Andean blackberry, Rubus glaucus, using SSR markers

M. Marulanda, López, A. M., and Uribe, M., Molecular characterization of the Andean blackberry, Rubus glaucus, using SSR markers, vol. 11, pp. 322-331, 2012.

The species Rubus glaucus, also known as the Andean or “Castilla” blackberry, is one of nine edible species of this genus that grow naturally in Central and South America. In Colombia, this species is the most important of all Rubus species for agricultural and commercial purposes. We used 20 SSRs developed for other Rubus species to characterize 44 Colombian R. glaucus genotypes, collected from eight different departments, and to look for molecular differences between thornless and thorny cultivated blackberries.
