Development and characterization of microsatellite markers for the poplar rust fungi Melampsora medusae and Melampsora larici-populina
Molecular Ecology Notes 5 (3), 484-486
Abstract: Melampsora species and their hybrids are obligate parasites of Populus and Salix species worldwide. The increasing interest in Populus and Salix for biomass and fibre production necessitates genetic markers for population studies of Melampsora spp. Libraries enriched for simple sequence repeats were used to develop five microsatellite markers for Melampsora medusae and Melampsora larici-populina. The variation detected by these markers will be valuable for phylogenetic and population genetic studies, substantiate putative hybrids, and deployment of resistant poplar clones.
