An assessment on intraspecific transferability of SSR markers on fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) varieties

Published on

The amplification potential of 27 SSR primer pairs originally
reported on exotic fennel (
Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) was
studied on Indian fennel. Only 13 primer pairs developed
amplicons (only one amplicon per primer pair) of sizes
ranging from 100 to 450 bp. To determine their polymorphic
potential, a set of 20 diverse fennel germplasm lines was
used. Four primers exhibiting polymorphism, did segregate
the 20 diverse lines in 9 clusters. However, these primer
pairs did not differentiate between 17 improved varieties of
