Abstract: Abstract -The objective of this work was to evaluate the efficiency of EST-SSR markers in the assessment of the genetic diversity of rubber tree genotypes (Hevea brasiliensis) and to verify the transferability of these markers for wild species of Hevea. Forty-five rubber tree accessions from the Instituto Agronômico (Campinas, SP, Brazil) and six wild species were used. Information provided by modified Roger's genetic distance were used to analyze EST-SSR data. UPGMA clustering divided the samples into two ma…
