Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are important components of eukaryotic genomes and may play an important role in regulating gene expression. However, the characteristics of genic SSRs and the effect of interspecific hybridization and polyploidization on genic SSRs seem not to have received desired attention in terms of scientific investigations. To determine the features of genic SSRs and elucidate their role in polyploidization process of the Brassica family, we identified SSRs in Plant Genome… CONTINUE READING
