Use of expressed sequence tags-derived simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers for population studies of released and elite sweet potato

Development of improved varieties of sweet potato to meet specific end users in the sub-Saharan African region has the potential of transforming the crop’s market, consumption and health benefits. Molecular biology techniques such as fingerprinting are key to crop improvement, and critical for numerous genetic studies. This study, carried out in Ghana, seeks to determine genetic relatedness among two populations...
