Abstract/Summary SNP markers may be discovered using many strategies. This chapter describes the approach of finding SNP markers in the flanking sequences surrounding microsatellites (simple sequence repeats (SSRs)). A major advantage of this strategy is that SSR markers have been widely studied and mapped in plant genomes, thus providing a readily available source of genetic loci that have already been mapped and that are readily convertible to SNP markers. SSRs have been markers of choice because they are highly informative, easy to use and many are now well-characterized. The topics covered include: SSR analysis; the main reasons for using SNP markers; the reason for using SSR markers to find SNPs; SNPs in wheat SSR markers; SNP discovery methods; pyrophosphate sequencing.
