Chloroplast simple sequence repeat markers for evolutionary studies in the sexually deceptive orchid genus Chiloglottis

Ebert, Daniel; Hayes, Christine; Peakall, Rodney


The orchids in the genus Chiloglottis are pollinated exclusively by sexual deception. Extensive sequencing (> 19.5 kb) of noncoding chloroplast DNA revealed that simple sequence repeats (cpSSRs) were abundant, enabling a set of 41 cpSSR markers to be developed. All markers were polymorphic across the genus. Polymorphism reflected variation at both mononucleotide repeats and indels. For a subset of four taxa with 40 samples each, locus polymorphism varied from 46 to 81%, while the number of...[Show more]
