CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Snp discovery by ecotilling using capillary electrophoresis.

Ecotilling (derived from targeting-induced local lesions in genomes (TILLING)) is a high-throughput method of detecting naturally-occurring DNA polymorphisms in specific gene sequences. Sugarcane, a complex polyploid species, was utilized as a model to develop and test new protocols for high...

Cover for Genotyping by allele-specific PCR.

SNPs are the basis for many polymorphisms that are detected using systems such as restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs), randomly amplified polymorphic DNAs (RAPDs) and amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs). Cleaved amplified polymorphic site (CAPS or PCRRFLP) markers have...

Cover for Genotyping for rice eating qualities.

If the genetic basis of a trait is sufficiently well understood, genotyping is a simple, inexpensive and rapid way for breeders to introgress desirable grain characteristics into new or existing varieties because the confusing effects of the environment are removed and breeding programmes can...

Cover for Microsatellite analysis in cultivated hexaploid wheat and wild wheat relatives.

Analysis of the microsatellite library by restriction digestion indicated that the sizes of clone inserts ranged from 130 to 1000 bp, with an average insert size of 415 bp. Of the 48 sequences analysed, dinucleotides were the most common microsatellite repeat type, with CA then GT occurring most...
