Interpretive Summary: A standard fingerprinting DNA test was used to genotype 34 Korean pear accessions from the National collection. Based on DNA analysis, the Korean accessions were separated into three groups according to species. The results of this study reaffirmed the efficiency of this DNA test and provided data that could be useful for developing a core collection of pears.
Technical Abstract: After analysis with 12 microsatellite loci previously selected for use by ECPGR, 34 Korean pear accessions were classified into 3 groups. Group I included 4 Korean pea pears and one accession of P. calleryana. Group II contained 12 cultivars including 7 accessions presumed to belong to P. pyrifolia. Group III contained 17 cultivars including 13 accessions presumed to belong to P. ussuriensis. The results of this study reaffirmed the efficiency of these microsatellite loci and provides data, which will be useful for developing a core collection of pears.
