We developed and characterized 8 polymorphic microsatellite loci or simple sequence repeats from the expressed sequence tags database of the medicinal fungus, Antrodia cinnamomea. Variability was assessed in a panel of 23 strains collected from various regions of Taiwan. The number of alleles per polymorphic locus ranged from two to seven loci with an average of 4.375 alleles per locus. The observed and expected heterozygosity values ranged from 0.130 to 0.783 and from 0.122 to 0.809, respectively. No significant Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was detected (P < 0.01) at all loci. The EST-SSR markers developed in the present study can be used for strain identification and population genetic studies in A. cinnamomea.
