The DNA markers
in this map are highly informative and are densely distributed, with an average interval between markers of 1.
But this DNA marker
can be traced back through thousands of years across central Europe, all the way to Mongolia and Kazakhstan.
Today, Hammer and his colleagues are able to use a much larger battery of DNA markers
and consequently able to develop a more fully resolved Cohen Modal Haplotype called the extended Cohen Modal Haplotype.
Microsatellite DNA markers
are short tandem repeats of nucleotide motifs, 2 to 6 base pairs (bp) in length, which are distributed throughout the genome in prokaryotes and eukaryotes (Chambers & MacAvoy, 2000).
Sappington's team is also using DNA markers
to genetically locate the gene or genes responsible for "rotation resistance," an egg-laying behavior that enables some rootworm populations to survive rotations of corn with soybean, a nonhost crop on which the pest's caterpillars cannot feed.
The relationship between phenotype and presence/absence of a male-specific DNA marker
in chinook salmon populations of wild or hatchery origin from the Columbia River watershed.
APDN has patented, proprietary DNA embedment protocols that ensure that the SigNature[TM] DNA marker
cannot be removed, copied or replicated by physical means.
DNA-reporter adducts offer a high-speed first defense that enable a rapid screening to identify the presence of a SigNature[TM] DNA marker
The SigNature[TM] DNA Marker
can be combined with any number of additional security features enabling easy front end inspection, while providing forensic authentication whenever it is required.
MSAGL staff also teamed with geneticist Jodi Scheffler, in ARS's Crop Genetics and Production Research Unit at Stoneville, Clemson University in South Carolina, and grower-funded Cotton Incorporated to develop a DNA marker
database for cotton.
This SigNature DNA Marker
can then be embedded into a broad variety of media.
Researchers have created DNA marker
databases and genome maps for several major crop plants but not for cotton.
