Abstract

Little research has been carried out on the genetics of Rhinanthus minor to date. To enable study of this species, eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed, using a genomic library enriched for microsatellites. All loci are polymorphic in the two UK populations tested, Bardister and Oxwich Bay. These microsatellite markers will be useful for studying genetic structure and subspecies differences of R. minor.
