Abstract

Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers for Fusarium pseudograminearum with 2 to 3 bp repeat motifs were identified by screening the genome database of the related species Fusarium graminearum. Twelve SSRs amplified single loci in both F. graminearum and F. pseudograminearum. Forty F. pseudograminearum and six F. graminearum individual isolates were screened to determine levels of polymorphism, with all SSRs displaying three to 14 alleles across all isolates. Eleven SSRs were polymorphic across F. pseudograminearum isolates tested proving the usefulness of genome databases of closely related species in identifying genetic markers. © 2007 The Authors.
