Polymorphism of Microsatellite Sequence within Protein Kinase ORFs in Phytopathogenic Fungus, Magnaporthe Grisea
Eighteen polymorphic microsatellite markers suitable for population genetic studies and protein kinase encoding genic variation measurement were developed for rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea. Polymorphism was evaluated by using 46 isolates collected from diverse geographical locations and rice varieties. Preliminary results indicate that each locus harbors two to fourteen alleles.
