Abstract

Lycoris longituba is a tulip-like ornamental plant in China. We report on the data mining of L. longituba expressed sequence tags (ESTs) to generate simple sequence repeat (SSRs) markers. Eighteen EST-SSRs were isolated and validated for 32 individuals. These markers will be valuable for studying the genetic structure and diversity of populations for L. longituba.
