The progress of genome sequencing projects of model plants like barley, combined with the recent advances of high throughput assays, has provided a wealth of sequence information. This information is being employed to develop a high density transcript map of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). To achieve this goal, the available EST database is being used as a resource for the development of novel microsatellite (SSR) and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers. So far, a total of 692 microsatellites representing different di-, tri- and tetra-nucleotide repeats were identified from a set of 19,000 EST sequences. Non-redundant SSRs have been used for mapping and so far 76 microsatellite loci were mapped. In addition to the 180 SNP primer pairs, which were designed to target specific ESTs, 72 were polymorphic among the seven genotypes examined here. Of these, 60 SNPs have been mapped applying a denaturing HPLC approach. To examine the potential of the EST-derived markers for pedigree studies, EST-derived SSRs (75 loci) and SNPs (72 loci) were used to fingerprint a set of seven genotypes. The results show that although both marker types yielded similar groupings, a larger data set of both SSRs and SNPs is necessary to obtain stable clusters in unrelated germplasm.
