<em><p>Lactuca</em> sativa (cultivated lettuce) is the world's most important leafy salad vegetable. Apart from <em>L. sativa</em> , the genus <em>Lactuca</em> contains ca. 75 wild species, potentially useful to improve, for example, taste, texture, and disease resistance of cultivated lettuce. The wild species <em>L. serriola</em> (Prickly Lettuce), <em>L. saligna</em> (Least Lettuce), and <em>L. virosa</em> (Great Lettuce) are commonly used for lettuce improvement.</p><p> In preliminary experiments, we established that there is a close connection between evolutionary distances of wild species relative to cultivated lettuce, and their position in the lettuce ge...
