Abstract: Premise of the study: Polyploidy is common in the grasses and low-copy nuclear loci are needed to further our understanding of phylogenetic relationships. Methods and Results: Genetic and genomic resources were combined to identify loci known to influence plant and inflorescence architecture. Degenerate primers were designed and tested to amplify regions of 11 nuclear-encoded loci across the panicoid grasses. Conclusions: The primers designed in this study amplify regions of a diverse set of genes within the panicoid grasses. Properly employed, these markers will allow the identification of allopolyploid taxa and their diploid progenitors.
