Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) Fingerprint data for apples from the National Fruit Collection as used in Ordidge et al PLOS One 2018

How to cite this Dataset


Data are simple sequence repeat (SSR) genetic fingerprints of the accessions in the apple collection of the National Fruit Collection, Brogdale, UK. The data are called and rounded allele scores, recorded by marker to the nearest base pair. The data represent a reproduction and update of the original SSR dataset from Fernandez-Fernandez F (2010) as detailed in the publication by Ordidge et al., 2018 (PLOS One). A number of alleles were adjusted based on either rescoring and/or recalling of the original data files using Genemapper software and/or reproduction of fingerprints following the original published protocols.
