DNA markers found in peppers

Researchers at U.C. Davis have identified key genetic markers for members of the pepper family of plants.

Researchers say the DNA information they now have will help them expand areas where peppers can be grown. They say the information could also help them introduce some drough-resistant genes into different kinds of plants, including the bell pepper.
