Table 2 Comparison of several DNA-based markers used for hybrid identification

From: Genetic, morphological, and chemical patterns of plant hybridization

Marker Degree of polymorphism Inheritance Reproducibility Technical requirements
RAPD Medium Dominant Low Low
RFLP Medium Codominant High High
AFLP Medium Dominant High High
SSR Medium Codominant Medium Medium
SNP High Codominant High Medium
  1. RAPD, random amplified polymorphic DNA; RFLP, restriction fragment length polymorphism; AFLP, amplified fragment length polymorphism; SSR, single sequence repeats; SNP, single nucleotide polymorphism.
