Microsatellite Analysis of Oil Palms and their Progenies Bred in Papua New Guinea

Microsatellite Analysis of Oil Palms and their Progenies Bred in Papua New Guinea Our aim was to assess parental and population genetic variability in a partially nested set of breeding populations from the breeding program at Dami Research Station (West New Britain, PNG). Twenty microsatellite markers were tested for their ability to characterize genetic variation in oil palm populations bred at Dami Research Station. One hundred and twenty six individuals, including 100 F1 tenera hybrids of Dami Deli crossed with either AVROS, Ghana or AVROS/Ghana breeding lines were analysed. Eighteen of these markers were polymorphic within and among populations, amplifying 103 alleles in oil palm. Three individuals of other palm species (Cocos nucifera and two Phoenix spp.) were included as outliers. With these markers we have the power to distinguish individual palms, hence we conclude that they will facilitate association of markers with important phenotypic traits to streamline future breeding and selection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Tropical Plant Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

Our aim was to assess parental and population genetic variability in a partially nested set of breeding populations from the breeding program at Dami Research Station (West New Britain, PNG). Twenty microsatellite markers were tested for their ability to characterize genetic variation in oil palm populations bred at Dami Research Station. One hundred and twenty six individuals, including 100 F1 tenera hybrids of Dami Deli crossed with either AVROS, Ghana or AVROS/Ghana breeding lines were analysed. Eighteen of these markers were polymorphic within and among populations, amplifying 103 alleles in oil palm. Three individuals of other palm species (Cocos nucifera and two Phoenix spp.) were included as outliers. With these markers we have the power to distinguish individual palms, hence we conclude that they will facilitate association of markers with important phenotypic traits to streamline future breeding and selection.
