Classification of Korean native pear based on a standard set of microsatellite loci
After analysis with 12 microsatellite loci previously selected for use by ECPGR, 34 Korean pear accessions were classified into 3 groups. Group I included 4 Korean pea pears and one accession of P. calleryana. Group II contained 12 cultivars including 7 accessions presumed to belong to P. pyrifolia. Group III contained 17 cultivars including 13 accessions presumed to belong to P. ussuriensis. The results of this study reaffirmed the efficiency of these microsatellite loci and provides data, which will be useful for developing a core collection of pears.
