Development of a novel InDel based molecular marker, a potential to differentiate most of the traditional Basmati from non-Basmati rice varieties

Published on

Owing to the presence of desirable characteristics like extralong
and slender grains, delicious taste, superior aroma
and distinct flavor, Basmati rice varieties are immensely
popular are fetching higher prices in the market than non
Basmati rice varieties. Basmati rice is commonly adulterated
with many look alike, long grain non Basmati rice varieties.
Microsatellite markers (SSRs) have proven to be the markers
of choice to detect Basmati adulteration. Here, we report
the development of a novel InDel based STS marker, which
can differentiate most of the traditional Basmati from non-
Basmati rice varieties.

Keywords: Basmati, adulteration, promoter, STS, InDel
