Development of novel chloroplast microsatellite markers for Ginkgo biloba

M. Xu, Xu, L. A., Cao, F. L., Zhang, H. J., and Yu, F. X., Development of novel chloroplast microsatellite markers for Ginkgo biloba, vol. 14, pp. 7715-7720, 2015.

Ginkgo biloba is considered to be a living fossil that can be used to understand the ancient evolutionary history of gymnosperms, but little attention has been given to the study of its population genetics, molecular phylogeography, and genetic resources assessment. Chloro­plast simple sequence repeat (cpSSR) markers are powerful tools for genetic studies of plants. In this study, a total of 30 perfect cpSSRs of Ginkgo were identified and characterized, including di-, tri, tetra-, penta-, and hexanucleotide repeats.
