Assessment of genetic diversity of wheat genotypes by resistance gene analog-EST markers

O. Karakas, Gurel, F., and Uncuoglu, A. A., Assessment of genetic diversity of wheat genotypes by resistance gene analog-EST markers, vol. 10, pp. 1098-1110, 2011.

Resistance gene analog-expressed sequence tag (RGA-EST)-based markers have been used for variety discrimination and studies of genetic diversity in wheat. Our aim is to increase the competitiveness of public wheat breeding programs through intensive use of modern selection technologies, mainly marker-assisted selection. The genetic diversity of 77 wheat nucleotide binding site (NBS)-containing RGA-ESTs was assessed. Resistant and susceptible bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) genotypes were used as sources of DNA for PCR amplifications.
