Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) Markers for Genetic Diversity
- 785 Downloads
Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) is a hybridization-based high-throughput genotyping technology that was proposed in the beginning of the twenty-first century as an efficient and cost-effective alternative to existing genotyping systems, and since then it has been used extensively to explore genetic diversity in many plant species. In this chapter, we describe the principles behind DArT genotyping, summarize the research on plant genetic diversity utilizing the DArT system, discuss advantages, limitations, and perspectives of the technology.
