Abstract: Seventeen polymorphic microsatellite markers were isolated from enriched genomic libraries for Theobroma cacao, providing additional tools for studying the genetic diversity and map saturation of this species. These markers were characterized in 32 accessions of the T. cacao germplasm collection from the Centro de Pesquisas do Cacau. The number of alleles at each locus varied from 2 to 8, with an average of 4.41 alleles per locus. The polymorphism information content varied from 0.060 to 0.695, with an average of 0.333. The markers characterized in this study will be employed in map saturation studies and diversity assessments of cacao genotypes.
