Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted during 2010 to "(1) assemble, evaluate, and maintain Cynodon germplasm with potential for contributing to the breeding of improved turf cultivars," "(2) develop and use simple sequence repeat molecular markers," "(3) improve bermudagrass germplasm for seed production potential," and "(4) develop, evaluate, and release seeded and vegetatively propagated turf bermudagrass varieties." Details methods and materials used during the study, noting that "screening of more than 1,500 pupative F1 progeny plants was performed in 2010 by selecting 10 superior progeny plants after [a three-year evaluation period]." Reports that "eleven SSR [simple sequence repeat] markers were selected on the basis of their polymorphisms to amplify respective DNA samples of 32 commercial and experimental clonal turf bermudagrass cultivars." Concludes that "the study revealed one highly polymorphic marker, and any one of the remaining 10 markers are able to identify all non-mutation cultivars."

USGA Summary Points:OKC 1119 and OKC 1134 were released as new clonal turf bermudagrass cultivars by OAES in 2010 A set of 10 superior clonal bermudagrass putative hybrids were selected in 2010 from a screening nursery for nextstep in-house comprehensive evaluation A large set of SSR markers were developed from bermudagrass EST sequences and pre-existing sorghum SSR markers Eleven polymorphic SSR markers were selected to amplify 32 clonal turf bermudagrass cultivars
