Expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences available in the public databases provide a cost-effective and valuable genomic resource for the development of molecular markers. Introns which are non-coding DNA sequences of the gene could be used as potential molecular markers as they are highly variable compared to the coding sequences. This study reports the development of intron length polymorphism markers in cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.]. The ESTs of cowpea were aligned with genomic… CONTINUE READING
