  • huckleberry
  • The fruits of many species are eaten by humans and some are of commercial importance, including the cranberry, blueberry, bilberry or whortleberry, lingonberry or cowberry, and huckleberry. (wikipedia.org)
  • vines
  • Therefore, the efficient and powerful DNA fingerprinting made possible by the presented molecular marker panels represents an important and applicable resource in the cranberry industry for assessing the purity of grower and licensed propagator cranberry vines, protecting intellectual property rights, assisting grower's in determining genetic purity of existing beds, and for enabling genetic research and analysis of genetic diversity in cultivated, breeding and wild cranberry germplasm. (usda.gov)
  • fruits
  • Unlike large cranberry, this species is rarely cultivated, although some avid berry-pickers brave boggy conditions to harvest its fruits. (newenglandwild.org)
  • Cranberry, canneberge gros fruits Aiton, William. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, a subset of these panels were used to genotype (characterize with molecular markers) seedlings extracted from fruits in a cranberry bed planted to the cultivar Stevens. (usda.gov)
  • A subset of 3 multiplexing panels containing 12 SSR markers was used to genotype 174 seedlings from fruits collected in a commercial cranberry bed of the cultivar Stevens, and identification of intra-cultivar heterogeneity was investigated in the bed to validate the use of the markers in such future applications. (usda.gov)
  • traditionally
  • In regions where they are grown, cranberries are a popular pie filling, their juice is widely marketed as a beverage, and in sauce and relish form cranberries are traditionally associated with U.S. and Canadian Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. (britannica.com)
  • Cranberry has been traditionally consumed to combat the micro-organisms that cause genitourinary infections. (herbazest.com)
  • plant
  • The name vaccinium was used in classical Latin for a plant, possibly the bilberry or a hyacinth, and may be derived from the Latin bacca, berry, although its ultimate derivation is obscure. (wikipedia.org)
  • American cranberry American cranberry plant ( Vaccinium macrocarpon ). (britannica.com)
  • Adults like to sip drops of dew clinging to leaves and almost exclusively nectar on their host plant, cranberries. (wikipedia.org)
  • These markers can be used to assess the genetic homogeneity of grower and licensed propagators' cranberry beds, to protect the intellectual property rights of plant breeders, and to enable cranberry researchers to monitor the genetic identity of genotypes within their breeding programs and genetic studies. (usda.gov)
  • Hailing from North America , the cranberry plant found a place within human culture long before its first recorded appearance in the 14th century , when it was used by indigenous peoples as both medicine and food. (herbazest.com)
  • Genetic
  • Cranberry is in need of inexpensive high-throughput DNA fingerprinting methods for genetic research and germplasm purity testing for agricultural purposes. (usda.gov)
  • Several important cranberry cultivars and selections (n=18) and a diploid accession of V. oxycoccos were genotyped with the multiplexing panels and separated through principal component analysis (PCA) to demonstrate their effectiveness for DNA fingerprinting and genetic diversity analysis. (usda.gov)
  • markers
  • The panels contained a total of 61 molecular markers which easily separated important commercial cranberry cultivars. (usda.gov)
  • Therefore, we designed and validated 16-multiplexing panels containing 61 evenly distributed simple sequence (SSR) markers, with non-overlapping allele ranges, throughout the 12 cranberry linkage groups. (usda.gov)
  • berries
  • Calling the red berries, sasemineash, the Narragansett people may have introduced cranberries to colonists in Massachusetts. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is more robust than V. oxycoccos and has larger round, oblong, or pear-shaped berries that vary in colour from pink to very dark red or mottled red and white. (britannica.com)
  • sauce
  • Most cranberries are processed into products such as juice, sauce, jam, and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cranberry sauce is a traditional accompaniment to turkey at Christmas dinner in the United Kingdom, and at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners in the United States and Canada. (wikipedia.org)
  • molecular
  • This study developed sixteen molecular marker panels, which can be used for high-throughput DNA fingerprinting in cranberry. (usda.gov)
