Abstract

 Hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) has low levels of RFLP. Simple sequence repeats, however, show high levels of polymorphism and are therefore especially useful in intervarietal breeding applications. We present 53 newly mapped microsatellite loci for the wheat genetic map, 41 primary loci and 12 additional loci from these same primer pairs. Markers have been accredited with a quality score on a scale of 1–5 which describes the complexity of the amplification product profile from each primer pair.
