    Abstract: Finger millet (E. coracana (L.) Gaertn.) provides food for millions of people in Africa and Asia. In this study, sequence data were mined at the database of National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) with the aim of developing polymorphic expressed sequence tags simple sequence repeat (EST-SSRs) markers. Three selected markers which showe... Show More
