Application of AFLP technique for the genetic resources conservation of a model plant with a mixed mating system (Lima bean) and test of sampling strategies for the set up of core collection


Techniques of biochemical (isozymes) and molecular markers (AFLP) are applied for the conservation of the genetic resources of a model plant with a mixed mating system (Phaseolus lunatus L., Lima bean) and different sampling strategies are tested in order to establish a core collection. Plant materials are collected from in situ conservation areas in the central valley of Costa Rica as well as from a base collection maintained ex situ. Research is conducted in collaboration with Free University of Belgium (U.L.B.).
