Genetic Structure and Geographical Relationship of Selected Colocasia esculenta [L. Schott] Germplasm Using SSRs
(Journal of Advances in Biology & Biotechnology, 2016-11-17)
Aims: SSR markers were used to infer population genetic structure variability in taro cultivars with the objective of characterizing the allelic diversity of each geographical population. Place and Duration of Study: ...
Evaluation of Polymorphism Generated By Single Sequence Repeat Markers in Selected Taro Populations
(Journal of Medical and Biological Science Research, 2016-08-03)
Genetic structure of Kenya and Secretariat of Pacific Community’s Tarogen taro germplasm was investigated. Fifty cultivars were evaluated using six SSR primer combinations. Significant polymorphic variations within the ...
Genetic diversity analysis of Kenyan taro [Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott] accessions using SSR markers
(Sky Journal of Agricultural Research, 2016-07-08)
Six SSR primer pairs were used to characterize 25 taro genotypes of Kenya. A total of 30 polymorphic alleles were generated. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 1 to 6 alleles, with an average of 3.0425 alleles ...
