HY Zhang, LL He, HQ Zhong, FS Li, SC He, QH Yang

Abstract


Identification of “Saccharum spp. × Erianthus fulvus” F1 hybrids was performed with ITS analysis. Out of 6 pairs of ITS primers, ZM-02 and ZM-04 were found to be suitable to detect the hybrids. The rate of
true hybrids tested by ZM-02 and ZM-04 was 74.6 and 73.8% respectively and the amplification products of ZM-04 were similar to the ones of ZM-02.
