Genetic diversity in Old Portuguese durum wheat cultivars assessed by retrotransposon-based markers.

Retrotransposon-based markers, such as the inter-retrotransposon-amplified polymorphism (IRAP) and the retrotransposon microsatellite-amplified polymorphism (REMAP) are highly informative, multilocus, and reveal insertional polymorphisms among plant individuals. These markers have been used for evolutionary studies, genetic diversity assessment, DNA fingerprinting, genetic mapping linkage, and for the detection of genetic rearrangements induced by polyploidization. In this study, we used IRAP and REMAP markers to assess the genetic diversity among 51 old Portuguese durum wheat cultivars belonging to 27 botanical varieties and to define their genetic relationships.
