. Microsatellite markers, or SSRs, are an efficient method to assess the genetic diversity and population structure of plant populations [ Powell et al. (1996) ; reviewed in Varshney et al. (2005) ; Wang et al. (2009 )], and have proved useful for guiding

Two rootstocks from the Giessen (GiSelA) series of dwarfing cherry (Prunus sp.) rootstocks, GiSelA (GI) 5 (syn. 148/2) and GI 6 (syn. 148/1), are becoming commercially important and five other Giessen cherry rootstocks are being evaluated for horticultural traits. Since GI 5 and GI 6 are morphologically similar, a DNA fingerprinting project was undertaken to identify molecular markers that could be used by the nursery industry to differentiate these two rootstocks. The project was extended to include six additional Giessen rootstocks of varying pedigrees. Fourteen DNA primer pairs were tested for their ability to differentiate among the eight rootstocks. None of the primer pairs could differentiate all eight rootstock selections; however, three primer pairs could differentiate all but two selections. Two primer pairs, PMS 15 and PceGA59, were identified as the most suitable for high throughput screening of GI 5 and GI 6 due to the simplicity and the size of the base pair differences among the polymorphic fragments. These results demonstrate the utility of molecular markers to differentiate the Giessen cherry rootstocks.
