Study of genetic variability of Ribes L. representatives grown in Belarus


The research aims to study the genetic variability of Ribes L. representatives grown in Belarus, and to reveal a set of DNAmarkers for its DNA-identification. We formed a set of SSR-markers that possess rather high diagnostic value and allow identifying of black currant and gooseberry varieties at a molecular level and can be recommended for DNA-identification of those cultures.
