The use of RAPD and semi-random markers to verify somatic hybrids between diploid lines of Solanum tuberosum L.Cell Mol Biol Lett. 2002; 7(2B):671-6.CM
Markers specific to diploid lines of cultivated potato were identified using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), primed with arbitrary 10-mers generating RAPDs, or with semi-random primers targeting intron-exon semi-conservative sequences of plant genes. One hundred and fifty RAPD primers and twelve semi-random primers were tested. Selected primers were subsequently used for verification of putative somatic hybrids.
