Association of SSR markers with contents of fatty acids in olive oil and genetic diversity analysis of an olive core collection

M. Ipek, Ipek, A., Seker, M., and Gul, M. K., Association of SSR markers with contents of fatty acids in olive oil and genetic diversity analysis of an olive core collection, vol. 14, pp. 2241-2252, 2015.

The purpose of this research was to characterize an olive core collection using some agronomic characters and simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers and to determine SSR markers associated with the content of fatty acids in olive oil. SSR marker analysis demonstrated the presence of a high amount of genetic variation between the olive cultivars analyzed. A UPGMA dendrogram demonstrated that olive cultivars did not cluster on the basis of their geographic origin. Fatty acid components of olive oil in these cultivars were determined.

Expression of genes related to tolerance to low temperature for maize seed germination

The aim of this study was to characterize maize lines tolerant to cold temperatures during the germination process. Seeds from lines with different levels of tolerance to low temperatures were used; 3 lines were classified as tolerant and 3 as susceptible to low germination temperatures. A field was set up to multiply seeds from selected lines. After the seeds were harvested and classified, we conducted physiological tests and analyzed fatty acid content of palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, linolenic, and eicosenoic acids.
