Genetic diversity of Tunisian date palms (Phoenix dactylifera L.) revealed by nuclear microsatellite polymorphism


, : Genetic diversity of Tunisian date palms (Phoenix dactylifera L.) revealed by nuclear microsatellite polymorphism. Hereditas Lund 141(3): 278-287

Fourteen microsatellite loci of Phoenix dactylifera were targeted to examine the genetic diversity in Tunisian date-palms germplasm. They showed a high level of polymorphism in 49 accessions from three main oases with little geographic structure within Tunisia. The microsatellite data agrees with previous analyses of Tunisian germplasm using other molecular markers. 100% of local date-palms accessions were successfully fingerprinted and easily distinguished by the help of only three loci.
