ABSTRACT

With the discovery of molecular markers and marker assisted selection technology, the research has entered into a new era and has made it possible to develop new and more informative PCR-based markers, including SSR, and to further facilitate the use of markers in tomato breeding. The present study is a step to introduce a new SSR marker (TOM-144) which was deduced after evaluation of eight microsatellite loci amongst the twenty-one different tomato cultivars. The marker selected was inherited and segregated in mendelian fashion as demonstrated in successive generation of a cross between parent cvs. H-24 x GT-2.
