Current methods for molecular fingerprinting of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) have limited throughput or are costly, thus preventing the characterization of large germplasm collections such as those held by the International Agricultural Research Centers or National Research Institutions, which comprise hundreds to thousands of accessions. Here, we report the development of a fluorescence-based multiplex simple sequence repeat (SSR) marker kit that enables accurate and cost-effective… CONTINUE READING
