Patchouli [Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth.] is an aromatic, herbaceous plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family native to Southeast Asia. Its leaves produce an essential oil regularly used by the perfume and cosmetics industries. However, since patchouli from the Philippines and India were described and named Pogostemon patchouli, there has been a divergence in the identity of these species.

Development and characterization of microsatellite primers in Pogostemon cablin (Lamiaceae)

Microsatellite primers were developed and optimized for patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) to characterize the patchouli Active Germplasm Bank of Universidade Federal de Sergipe. Creation of a genomic library for patchouli enabled the design of 12 microsatellite primers. Six of these microsatellites were polymorphic, revealing two well-defined groups of individuals that possess exclusive alleles. The data allowed us to characterize the patchouli active Germplasm Bank, identify its genetic diversity, and provide new information for researching this species.
