Micro-satellite markers are valuable PCR-based molecular markers. Compared with other molecular markers, micro-satellite markers have additional advantages such as high polymorphism and good repetitive. They are also technically easy and inexpensive in use. In this paper the principle and method of micro-satellite technique and its application in rice were present.
