Prerequisite for the development of F1-hybrids in Helleborus orientalis Lam. is the evaluation of potential parentsí inbreeding levels.
As no codominant marker system is available, a method to estimate the inbreeding coefficient based on AFLP-markers has been applied and evaluated based on the progeny of a presumable selfing experiment.
The effect of marker numbers used in the analysis and the composition of an out-group for this calculation were analysed.
Practical problems of the method are discussed.
