Development of Microsatellite-Enriched Libraries

Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology book series (MIMB, volume 1115)


Among the molecular markers used for plant genetic studies, microsatellite markers are easy to implement and can provide suitable codominant markers for molecular taxonomy. Here we describe a method to obtain enriched libraries in microsatellite loci from genomic DNA, using capture method with synthetic oligonucleotide probes.
