Microsatellite marker data of Apium graveolens L. ssp. graveolens
Published microsatellite primers were evaluated to identify polymorphic markers. Sixteen SSRs proved to be polymorphic and were applied to study the patterns of genetic diversity within diploid Apium graveolens. The results of the study were published by Frese, L., Bönisch, M., Nachtigall, M., Schirmak, U. (2018, accepted): Patterns of genetic diversity and implications for in situ conservation of wild celery (Apium graveolens L. ssp. graveolens). Agriculture, Vol. 8. SSR data presented in excel file were generated by JKI in Quedlinburg, Germany. A total of 790 Apium graveolens plants were sampled at 27 localities in 2016 and analyzed using 16 SSR markers. All individuals (33 individuals in total) having a null allele at any of the marker loci were excluded from the dataset. The raw data were binned and statistically analyzed in 2017-2018. The dataset presented here contains information on 757 plants.
