Use of short microsatellites from database sequences to generate polymorphisms among Lycopersicon esculentum cultivars and accessions of other Lycopersicon species

Abstract

A search of nearly 2000 sequences from Solanaceae species in the EMBL and Genbank databases yielded 220 microsatellites. Among these were 80 microsatellites from 675 Lycopersicon entries. Dinucleotide repeats, as well as (CAA)n and (TAA)n repeats, were over-represented in non-coding DNA. The other trinucleotide repeats were predominantly found in exonic DNA… (More)
