Sequence Tagged Microsatellite Sites (STMSs) and morphological trait markers were used to evaluate 33 rhododendron germplasm for genetic diversity assessment and discrimination power.

In summary, STMS marker proved to be an efficient tool in assessing the genetic variability among old broad leaf rhododendron genotypes. The pattern of variation appeared to be consistent, and it can be used for germplasm conservation and management for restoration of historical genetic resources.

Are rhododendron hybrids distinguishable on the basis of morphology and microsatellite polymorphism?

Abstract

Sequence Tagged Microsatellite Sites (STMSs) and morphological trait markers were used to evaluate 33 rhododendron germplasm for genetic diversity assessment and discrimination power. The average genetic diversity estimates were 0.724 (morphological traits) and 0.174 (STMSs) marker datasets. The Shannon index was higher for morphological traits (1.797) than STMS (0.302). The correlation coefficients obtained by the Mantel matrix correspondence test, which was used to compare the cophenetic matrices for the two markers, showed that estimated values of relationships given for morphological and STMS were not significantly related (p > 0.05). The dataset from STMS, supported by the total probability of identity (1.13×10−9) and total paternity exclusion probability (0.9999), allowed all accessions to be uniquely identified. In summary, STMS marker proved to be an efficient tool in assessing the genetic variability among old broad leaf rhododendron genotypes. The pattern of variation appeared to be consistent, and it can be used for germplasm conservation and management for restoration of historical genetic resources.
