A set of 24 simple PCR markers was generated for tomato chromosomes 9, 10, 11 and 12. Polymorphism was sought for between Lycopersicon esculentum and one of six other Lycopersicon species (L. parviflorum, L. cheesmanii, L. hirsutum, L. pennellii, L. peruvianum, and L. chilense). PCR primers, which were designed from mapped RFLP sequences, were used to amplify genomic DNA of the different species and the PCR amplification products were screened for polymorphism by testing restriction enzymes. With this approach, 24 (71%) of the 34 selected RFLPs were converted into simple PCR markers. By using a reference population, the map positions of these markers relative to the original RFLP markers were verified. These markers are locus specific and can be efficiently used for alignment of linkage maps, mapping target genes and marker assisted selection.
