Simple Sequence Repeats (SSR) Marker

Simple Sequence Repeats (SSR) marker, also known as microsatellite DNA, is a molecular marker technique based on specific primer PCR developed in recent years. It widely exists in eukaryotes and some prokaryotes genomes, randomly distributed in nuclear DNA, chloroplast DNA and mitochondrial DNA, composed of 2-6 nucleotides tandem repeat fragments. SSR molecular marker technology has been widely used in the study of mitochondrial genetic diversity, genetic linkage map construction, mtDNA fingerprinting and variety identification and genome association analysis because of its high polymorphism, good repeatability, relatively simple operation, low cost, and so on.
