A high-throughput genomic tool: Diversity Arrays Technology complementary for rice genotyping

Diversity array technology (DArTTM) was a genotyping tool characterized gel-independent and high throughput. The main purpose of present study is to validate DArT for rice (Oryza sativa L.)genotyping in a high throughput manner. Technically, the main objective was to generate a rice general purpose gene pool, and optimize this genomic tool in order to evaluate rice germplasm genetic diversity. To achieve this, firstly, a general-purpose DArT array was developed.
