Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) or microsatellites constitute a countable portion of genomes. However, the significance of SSRs in organelle genomes has not been completely understood. The availability of organelle genome sequences allows us to understand the organization of SSRs in their genic and intergenic regions. In the current study, the mitochondrial and chloroplast genomes of different taxa of plants were surveyed. The present study only focused on different authors’ investigations and conclusions made based on their results in relation to the different plants. This study helps the researchers to know the different structures of plant genomes, improves the understanding of existing genomes and helps to find newer genomes.
Key words: Chloroplast, mitochondria, simple sequence repeats (SSRs), microsatellites, plants.
