Isolation and characterization of simple sequence repeat markers for the herbaceous species Phyla scaberrima (Verbenaceae)

C. L. Chaves, Ruas, E. A., Ruas, C. F., Delfini, J., Bejatto, N. C., Góes, B. D., and Ruas, P. M., Isolation and characterization of simple sequence repeat markers for the herbaceous species Phyla scaberrima (Verbenaceae), vol. 13, pp. 7864-7868, 2014.

Phyla scaberrima (Verbenaceae) is a herbaceous species distributed from Mexico to Panama. Because of its well-known sweet properties and other medicinal uses, this species is cultivated in South America and the Caribbean. Phyla scaberrima has been arbitrarily extracted from nature, resulting in a severe reduction in its gene pool. In this study, we developed and characterized 11 simple sequence repeat markers for P. scaberrima to determine the genetic variability and patterns of population structure of the species.
