Applications of molecular markers in the discrimination of species and Korean ginseng cultivars ()

The development of molecular markers is one of the most useful methods for molecular breeding and marker-based molecular associated selections. Even though less information of the reference genome, the molecular markers are indispensable tools for determination of genetic variation and identification of species with high levels of accuracy and reproducibility. The demand for molecular approaches for marker-based breeding and genetic discriminations in Panax species has greatly increased in recent times and has been successfully applied for various purposes.
