Development and characterization of simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers based on a full-length cDNA library of Napier Grass (Pennisetum purpureum Schum)

Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum Schum.) is an economically important species used as a fodder crop, reflecting its high biomass, perennial nature and pest resistance. In order to understand the genomic information and development of this species based on SSR markers, the transcriptome for Napier grass was obtained using next-generation sequencing.
