Plastid genome characterisation in Brassica and Brassicaceae using a new set of nine SSRs – M.L. Flannery, F.J.G. Mitchell, S. Coyne, T.A. Kavanagh, J.I. Burke, N.Salamin, P. Dowding, and T.R. Hodkinson – Theoretical and Applied Genetics – 2006

Summary: We report a new set of nine primer pairs specifically developed for amplification of Brassica plastid SSR markers. The analysis was generally able to separate plastid types into taxon-specific groups. We interpret our results with respect to taxon differentiation, hybridisation and introgression patterns relating to the ‘Triangle of U’.  Link: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00122-006-0377-0#page-1
