Localisation of morphological traits on the genetic map of potato using RFLP and isozyme markers = [Localisatie van morfologische eigenschappen op de genetische kaart van de aardappel door middel van RFLP en isozym merkers]

Abstract

<br/>The thesis describes the construction of a genetic linkage map of the potato genome, comprising molecular, isozyme and morphological markers. The linkage map is based on the offspring from non-inbred parents. The computer program J<font size="-1">OIN</font>M<font size="-1">AP</font>allowed to combine the maternal and paternal linkage groups, which are a consequence of using non-inbred parents. The map was applied for the analysis and localisation of morphological and agronomically important traits, with special emphasis on the inheritance of anthocyanin pigmentation. The presence of multiple alleles was demonstrated at the <em>Ro</em> locus which harbours a QTL involved in tuber shape. The accurate analysis of quantitative genetic variation caused by the segregation of a QTL with multiple alleles requires molecular markers which can distinguish all possible four allele combinations.
