Evaluation of genetic diversity of Asian callery pear
In this endeavor, Shiwani (MS student) is evaluating species diversity using de novo gSSRs. We accrued samples of non-cultivated P. calleryana from Asia. Molecular markers will be tested for cross-amplification to related species as well.
Fresh from the press!
