Genetic purity assessment of D x T hybrids in coconut with SSR markers

Published on

Assessment of genetic purity in coconut hybrids was done
using molecular markers. A set of 50 hyperpolymorphic
coconut SSR markers were utilized to characterize
parental lines Chowghat Green Dwarf (CGD) and West
Coast Tall (WCT) used for hybrid coconut production. A
panel of 17 informative SSR markers capable of
distinguishing these parental lines was identified and
these markers were utilized in DxT hybrid seedling purity
assessments in coconut nurseries.
