|Title:||Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers for Brachiaria brizantha (Hochst. ex A. Rich.) Stap|
do Valle, CB
de Souza, AP
|Abstract:||The first set of nuclear simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci for Brachiaria brizantha (Hochst. ex A. Rich.) Stap is described. A microsatellite-enriched library was constructed and 19 loci were characterized. About 13 SSR loci were found to be polymorphic and across-taxa amplification tests showed that six of them can be transferred to four other species of Brachiaria. This new SSR resource will be a powerful tool for population genetic studies of B. brizantha, for interspecific genetic studies within the genus Brachiaria, for mapping and for marker assisted selection in breeding.|
