Table 4 SSRs localization in the S. incanum and S. aethiopicum transcriptomes

From: Transcriptome analysis and molecular marker discovery in Solanum incanum and S. aethiopicum, two close relatives of the common eggplant (Solanum melongena) with interest for breeding

  1. The SSRs detected in the transcriptomes were checked for their position in the unigenes (ORF, 5′UTR and 3′UTR) according to the nucleotide repeats. When no precise position was established the SSRs were defined as “Other”
