We report the development of eight microsatellite markers in the haploid filamentous fungus Fusarium culmorum, a pathogen of numerous cereal crops. An enrichment protocol was used to isolate microsatellite loci, and polymorphism was explored with isolates of Fusarium culmorum and F. graminearum from natural populations collected from several French locations.
