Acacia crassicarpa is a tropical forestry species that is increasingly being planted in South-East Asia. Usingnext- generation sequencing, we developed 12 nuclear microsatellite markers for A. crassicarpa and optimisedthem for assay in three multiplex sets. We tested the 12 loci on 34 A. crassicarpa samples and found thatpolymorphism ranged from 4 to 8 alleles per locus (average = 5.8). The loci were easy to score in terms ofbinning and their reproducibility and polymerase chain reaction success rate were high. Given their usabilityand polymorphism we believe that these 12 loci will be useful for DNA profiling and mating system analysis withdirect application in breeding programmes and the conservation of wild populations. Six of the markers alsoamplified products in related A. mangium and A. auriculiformis, with four being polymorphic in three samplesof each species. Therefore, these markers added more broadly to the genomic resources available in Acacia.
