Comparison of a retrotransposon-based marker with microsatellite markers for discriminating accessions of Vitis vinifera

G. C. Sant’Ana, Ferreira, J. L., Rocha, H. S., Borém, A., Pasqual, M., and Cançado, G. M. A., Comparison of a retrotransposon-based marker with microsatellite markers for discriminating accessions of Vitis vinifera, vol. 11, pp. 1507-1525, 2012.

Identification and knowledge concerning genetic diversity are fundamental for efficient management and use of grapevine germplasm. Recently, new types of molecular markers have been developed, such as retrotransposon-based markers. Because of their multilocus pattern, retrotransposon-based markers might be able to differentiate grapevine accessions with just one pair of primers.

Association of RGA-SSCP markers with resistance to downy mildew and anthracnose in grapevines

P. A. Tantasawat, Poolsawat, O., Prajongjai, T., Chaowiset, W., and Tharapreuksapong, A., Association of RGA-SSCP markers with resistance to downy mildew and anthracnose in grapevines, vol. 11, pp. 1799-1809, 2012.

Downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola) and anthracnose (Sphaceloma ampelinum) are two major diseases that severely affect most grapevine (Vitis vinifera) cultivars grown commercially in Thailand. Progress of conventional breeding programs of grapevine for improved resistance to these diseases can be speeded up by selection of molecular markers associated with resistance traits.

Inheritance of downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola) and anthracnose (Sphaceloma ampelinum) resistance in grapevines

O. Poolsawat, Mahanil, S., Laosuwan, P., Wongkaew, S., Tharapreuksapong, A., Reisch, B. I., and Tantasawat, P. A., Inheritance of downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola) and anthracnose (Sphaceloma ampelinum) resistance in grapevines, vol. 12, pp. 6752-6761, 2013.

Downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola) and anthracnose (Sphaceloma ampelinum) are two of the major diseases of most grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) cultivars grown in Thailand. Therefore, breeding grapevines for improved downy mildew and anthracnose resistance is crucial. Factorial crosses were made between three downy mildew and/or anthracnose resistant lines ('NY88.0517.01', 'NY65.0550.04', and 'NY65.0551.05'; male parents) and two or three susceptible cultivars of V. vinifera ('Black Queen', 'Carolina Black Rose', and/or 'Italia'; female parents).
