Citrus (Citrus reticulate) accessions entering the Virus Free Nucleus Block at the Institute for Tropical and Subtropical Crops have been characterised based on important morphological or agronomical features. These defining morphological or agricultural characteristics are not continuously expressed within the potted greenhouse environment. It is therefore not always possible to check or verify the trueness-to-type of an accession which may prevent the detection of misidentifications or duplicates. A large number of microsatellite (SSR) markers have been developed for mandarin genotyping. In this study a set of 13 SSR markers was selected and assessed for their ability to distinguish between 32 mandarin accessions and future use in the establishment of a molecular genotype database for mandarin accession verification.
