Development of DArT markers in olive (Olea europaea L.) and usefulness in variability studies and genome mapping

The present study reports the setting up of Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) markers in olive (Olea europaea L.). Two genomic representations were generated using the PstI/. TaqI combination. A first one was aimed to cover the variability available at the World Olive Germplasm Bank (WOGB) and it was based on DNA from 87 olive cultivars carefully selected from the WOGB to represent the olive variability.
