Abstract

PREMISE OF THE STUDY:

We demonstrated the application of high-throughput 454 sequencing technology in the identification of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers in Hevea brasiliensis.

METHODS AND RESULTS:

A total of 5883 putative SNP positions were discovered in silico, and 10 biallelic SNP markers were validated from 454-derived EST sequences. The polymorphism information content (PIC) and the observed heterozygosity (H(o)) ranged from 0.0963-0.5135 and 0.1071-0.4643, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS:

These markers can be useful for the construction of genetic maps, the identification of quantitative trait loci linked to commercially desirable traits, and the study of genetic structure in H. brasiliensis.
