*SSR, simple sequence repeats. Numbers in parentheses indicate the number of mono/di/tetranucluotide repeats found in each SSR; pr, SSR located within predicted promoter (pr) region upstream of the coding sequence (CDS); CDS, SSR located within the CDS; CDS, SSR in CDS results in a frame-shift and an out-of-frame CDS; NA, not applicable.
