Hi, Is there any difference between Illimuna-genomic sequence based microsatellite (SSR) markers and transcriptomic sequence based ones? If so, could you please explain the difference.

SSR from transcriptomic data? How it is possible if they are from non-coding regions? I think you can (or have) do this analysis just for reads from genomic sequences.

Actually transcriptome based SSR markers are named as EST-SSR or genic-SSR, such as "https://bmcplantbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-2229-11-17". However I have same question, I couldnt understand the logic behind genic-SSRs. How possible to use them directly for amplification from DNA?. Additionally what is the difference between genomic and genic SSRs to distinguish them? Thank you, Elvan

Please useADD REPLY to reply to earlier reactions, as such this thread remains logically structured and easy to follow. I have now moved your post, but as you can see it's not optimal.

Genomic includes non-coding regions, genic does not (even 5and 3 UTRs).

thus we can say that genic SSRs are more specific than genomic ones. However I think genomic SSRs must be more comprehensive, what I understand. Thank you.
