Abstract: Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers have the characteristics of simple operation, codominance and reliable reproduciblity in phylogenetic studies. This paper summarizes the techniques for developing peony SSR marker primers: bioinformatics technology, magnetic beads enrichment and next-generation sequencing. Furthermore, we summarize the current findings of the frequency and distribution of SSR loci in peony genome. We hope our summary on the application of SSR markers on tree peony will provide useful references to people who are working on the species.
