Task 3.2.2. DNA-Analysis (AFLP)
Task lead: Dr. Michał Ronikier, Instytut Botaniki im. W. Szafera, Polska Akademia, Poland
AFLP analysis using protocols developed during the European project IntraBioDiv were used to produce the number of markers required according to the output of WP03.01. For Arabis alpina, data was produced for 50 populations in the Eastern Alps and 17 populations in the Western Carpathians. Eleven individuals per population were genotyped for 218 markers. For Dryas octopetala, data was produced for 51 populations in the Eastern Alps and 16 populations in the Western Carpathians. For most of the populations we genotyped 11 individuals but this number was increased to 20 for a dozen of populations from the Eastern Alps.
