Most of the flea beetles prefer cruciferous plants which produce…

With reference to Brown’s paper Yau-Wen Yang et al. said that in mammals, the rate of silent nucleotide substitution in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is very high compared to that in nuclear DNA (Brown et al. 1979). In contrast, to that the rate is low in plant mtDNA, only about one-third of the silent rate in chloroplast DNA and one-twelfth of…

    Leroy et al. (2000) used 4 microsatellite primers to characterise Brassica oleracea accessions. Among the 136 reproducible fragments generated, 25 (18.4%) fragments were common for all Brassica, 27 (19.9%) were unique and 84 (61.7%) were phylogenetically informative. Flannery et al. (2006) assessed polymorphisms in Brassica, Arabidopsis, Camelina, Raphanus and Sinapis using 10 plastid SSR primer sets. Eight loci were polymorphic, and separated the individuals of Brassicaceae into taxon-specific…
