Molecular characterization of Algerian date palm cultivars using circular plasmid-like DNAs

Published on

Bayoud disease of the date palm (Fusarium oxysporum f.
sp. albedinis) is a vascular disease caused by a soil fungus.
Twenty one Algerian date palm cultivars (20 females and 1
male) in addition to 6 genotypes of Deglet Nour were
assessed for resistance (R) and susceptibility (S) to Bayond
disease using molecular markers. Specifically, the use of
two circular plasmid-like DNAs (R and S plasmids) as
molecular markers allowed us to detect the R cultivars.
Among the 21 cultivars, we found that Baâret ljmal is
