Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers are characterized by high polymorphism, good reproducibility and co-dominance etc. They can be easily applied to develop efficient, simple and practical molecular markers. In the present study, bioinformatics methods were applied to identify high-throughput perfect SSRs of cultivar Passiflora genome. A total of 13104 perfect SSRs were obtained. SSR core sequence structure is mainly 2-4 bases, the maximum numbers are TA, AT, TC and AG. The maximum numbers of repetitions were up to 20 times. A total of 12934 pairs of SSR markers were developed by using bioinformatics software, and 20 pairs of markers were selected for amplification specificity assessment of MTX and WJ10, and the polymorphism rate was as high as 60%. The large-scale development of the SSR markers of Passiflora cultivar has paved a foundation for the efficient utilization of the germplasm resources of passion fruit, genetic improvement of the varieties and molecular breeding.
