Abstract

Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers are a major molecular tool for genetic and genomic research, developed from the genomic sequences having the advantages of being more polymorphic than expressed sequence tag (EST) SSR markers. Moth orchids (Phalaenopsis sp.), with a complex genome, require more of such informative markers for various applications in genetics and breeding. The objective of this study was to develop and characterize a set of genomic SSR markers and evaluate their efficiency in molecular fingerprinting in Phalaenopsis orchids.
