Genetic differentiation of hexaploid wheat inferred from analysis of microsatellite loci

Genetic differentiation of hexaploid wheat inferred from analysis of microsatellite loci Landraces of wheat can serve as important potential sources for extending the genetic basis of selection cultivars. Analysis of microsatellites and typing of polymorphism in a representative sample of 347 genotypes, including landraces and selection cultivars, was performed using a set of 38 selected oligonucleotide primer pairs. Each genotype had a unique allele combination at 39 microsatellite loci examined. Classification of genotypes with respect to the level of their similarity was performed using cluster analysis. The data obtained pointed to genetic differentiation of hexaploid wheat. The groups of cultivars, the formation of which was thought to be associated with the main old areas of wheat cultivation in Europe and Asia, were identified. The basis of each of the groups was formed by landraces of common wheat. The differences between the groups identified were associated with multiple changes in the wheat genome and were expressed as quantitative differences in the allele frequencies of microsatellite loci. The results of the study are of interest in terms of understanding the structure of wheat genetic diversity and revealing the pathways of evolution of this culture.
