Plant Genetic Resources
Plant Genetic Resources is an international journal that brings together the many diverse topics concerned with plant genetic resources. Each issue gives you access to peer-reviewed research papers on genetic variation in plants, both crop and non-crop, as well as on the technical, socio-economic, legal and geo-political aspects of PGR. Many papers feature research directed to endangered non-crop and medicinal plants. The journal is of interest to researchers and scientists involved in the plant genetic resources community, including: breeders, all those with an interest in germplasm, policy makers, consultants and research students.

ABSTRACT: To evaluate the genetic diversity (GD) of wild and cultivated soybeans and determine the genetic relationships between them, in this study, 127 wild soybean accessions and 219 cultivated soybean accessions were genotyped using 74 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. The results of the study revealed that the GD of the wild soybeans exceeded that of the cultivated soybeans. In all, 924 alleles were detected in the 346 soybean accessions using 74 SSRs, with an average of 12.49 alleles per locus. In the 219 cultivated soybean accessions, 687 alleles were detected, with an average of 9.28 alleles per locus; in the 127 wild soybean accessions, 835 alleles were detected, with an average of 11.28 alleles per locus. We identified 237 wild-soybean-specific alleles and 89 cultivated-soybean-specific alleles in the 346 soybean accessions, and these alleles accounted for 35.28% of all the alleles in the sample. Principal coordinates analysis and phylogenetic analysis based on Nei's genetic distance indicated that all the accessions could be classified into two major clusters, corresponding to wild and cultivated soybeans. These results will increase our understanding of the genetic differences and relationships between wild and cultivated soybeans and provide information to develop future breeding strategies to improve soybean yield.Plant Genetic Resources 07/2014; 12:87-90.

ABSTRACT: The development of modern approaches to the genetic improvement of the tree crop Ilex paraguariensis (‘yerba mate’) and Ilex dumosa (‘yerba sen ˜orita’) is halted by the scarcity of basic genetic information. In this study, we characterized the implementation of low-cos methodologies such as representational difference analysis (RDA), single-strand conformation polymorphisms (SSCP), and reverse and direct dot-blot ﬁlter hybridization assays coupled with thorough bioinformatic characterization of sequence data for both species. Also, we estimated the genome size of each species using ﬂow cytometry. This study contributes to the better understanding of the genetic differences between two cultivated species, by generating new quantitative and qualitative genome-level data. Using the RDA technique, we isolated a group of non-coding repetitive sequences, tentatively considered as Ilex-speciﬁc, which were 1.21- to 39.62-fold more abundant in the genome of I. paraguariensis. Another group of repeti tive DNA sequences involved retrotransposons, which appeared 1.41- to 35.77-fold more abundantly in the genome of I. dumosa. The genomic DNA of each species showed differen performances in ﬁlter hybridizations: while I. paraguariensis showed a high intraspeciﬁc afﬁnity I. dumosa exhibited a higher afﬁnity for the genome of the former species (i.e. interspeciﬁc) These differences could be attributed to the occurrence of homologous but slightly divergen repetitive DNA sequences, highly ampliﬁed in the genome of I. paraguariensis but not in the genome of I. dumosa. Additionally, our hybridization outcomes suggest that the genomes o both species have less than 80% similarity. Moreover, for the ﬁrst time, we report herein a genome size estimate of 1670Mbp for I. paraguariensis and that of 1848Mbp for I. dumosa.Plant Genetic Resources 05/2014;
