Genetic diversity of Lagerstroemia (Lythraceae) species assessed by simple sequence repeat markers

D. He, Liu, Y., Cai, M., Pan, H. T., Zhang, Q. X., Wang, X. Y., and Wang, X. J., Genetic diversity of Lagerstroemia (Lythraceae) species assessed by simple sequence repeat markers, vol. 11, pp. 3522-3533, 2012.

Lagerstroemia (crape myrtle) are famous ornamental plants with large pyramidal racemes, long flower duration, and diverse colors. However, little is known about the genetic structure and diversity of germplasm in Lagerstroemia. We genotyped 81 L. indica cultivars, five other species of Lagerstroemia, and 10 interspecific hybrids using 30 simple sequence repeat markers; 275 alleles were generated with a mean of nine alleles per locus.
