|Title:||Development and characterisation of microsatellite markers for Cordia verbenacea (Boraginaceae), an important medicinal species from the Brazilian coast|
|Abstract:||Cordia verbenacea DC (Boraginaceae) is a Brazilian coastal shrub species extensively utilized in the folk medicine and also by the pharmaceutical industry. Despite its enormous economic and pharmacological potential, little is known about its reproductive biology, genetic structure and genetic diversity of natural populations. Due to the rapid degradation of its natural habitat, this knowledge became imperative. We developed a set of eight highly polymorphic microsatellite markers for the study of genetic structure and diversity of C. verbenacea natural populations and germplasm collections. Six of them revealed a multibanded pattern typical of polyploid species. The total number of bands per locus ranged from 2 to 12 and the number of bands per locus per individual ranged from 1 to 8. The primer pairs presented here will be used to generate information to guide conservation programs and rational exploitation of C. verbenacea.|
