Title: GUAYULE MOLECULAR MARKERS AND PRIMERS AND USE OF MOLECULAR MARKERS, PRIMERS AND RATE OF APOMIXIS FOR GUAYULE IDENTIFICATION, CHARACTERIZATION AND BEEDING
Abstract:
The present invention is directed to guayule molecular markers and primers and use of those markers and primers for guayule identity, characterization and breeding. The invention is further directed to a method for breeding guayule that involves determining the rate of apomixis of one or more guayule plants, determining the genetic pedigree of one or more guayule plants, and using that information to identify one or more select guayule plants for use in guayule plant breeding to produce an advanced guayule plant.
