A CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme project.....Cultivating Genetic Diversity for the Resource Poor
1: Using Molecular Marker Technology in Studies on Plant Genetic Diversity:
Learning module, M. Carmen de Vicente (IPGRI) and Theresa Fulton (Institute
for Genomic Diversity, Cornell University)
Volume 2: Genetic Diversity
Analysis with Molecular Marker Data: Learning Module, M.C. de
Vicente IPGRI), C. Lopez (Universidad Nacional Agraria 'La Molina', Peru)
and T. Fulton (IGD)
These modules, developed
jointly by IPGRI and the Institute for Genomic Diversity, aim to promote
capacity building and research biodiversity use and conservation worldwide
through the application of molecular markers. They discuss the fundamental
principles of genetic diversity, the qualities of the markers used to
measure it and the most widely used technologies, including those based
on proteins, DNA and the polymerase chain reaction. Explanatory graphics
and photographs illustrate key experimental procedures, and real-life
examples are given of applications to particular cases of genetic diversity
studies and/or germplasm management. These should help in the use of the
modules as a useful educational resource, whether as a self-tutorial or
incorporated into a university curriculum. They also compare the various
techniques - their advantages and disadvantages, and relative costs of
each procedure to help the beginning scientist understand the key components
for selecting those procedures most appropriate for a given research.
