MaizeDB is delighted to present 61 new PCR primer pairs for SSR's
(simple sequence repeats; microsatellites). The data were supplied by the
Maize Microsatellite Consortium (mmc; 34 pairs) and the Missouri Maize
Project (umc; 27 pairs), courtesy of Keith Edwards and Mike McMullen.

These are posted with the other public SSR PCR primer pairs at

There are now 238 mapped microsatellites for 206 distinct genes, RFLP or
probed sites. The last major update to the public dataset
occured December 1996.

Please take a moment and let me know if there is something else you
would find useful in the tables presented.
