Project Number: 6202-21000-036-01
Start Date: Feb 15, 2011
End Date: Feb 14, 2016
Microsatellite primers developed in previous research will be used to characterize accessions at the level of species, population, and individual, and to verify questions of parentage. New primers will be developed as needed. Other techniques, such as Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphisms (AFLPs) and Expressed Sequence Tag analysis (ESTs) will be pursued.
