Abstract

This study aims at developing and characterizing new microsatellite primer pairs in Taraxacum officinale auct. to produce polymorphic markers for genetical and evolutionary studies on apomixis in this sexual-apomictic complex. A total of 24 diploid plants were tested for allelic polymorphism and heterozygosity. Out of nine loci three deviated significantly from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium expectations, probably due to the presence of null-alleles. Successful cross-species amplification was obtained for all markers in 29 Taraxacum microspecies from five sections.
