Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) Low Cost, Generic Molecular Markers for Breeding and Research uri icon


  • The use of molecular markers has been shown to be apowerful approach for the genetic dissection andmanipulationof many traits of importance in agriculture. However, their fullimpact, especially in breeding, is yet to be realized. This is dueto a number of limitations such as the time and resourcesrequired to discover a large number of polymorphic markersfor a species, requirements for sequence information formarker development, and the cost and time for scoring themarkers (average per datapoint cost of overUS$1.00).With the advent of Restriction Fragment
