Abstract: Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) is the most widely cultivated forage legume around the world. Though development and application of microsatellite markers in large-scale was reported in this species, a systematic investigation and large-scale exploitation of intron-length polymorphic (ILP) markers has not been conducted. In the present study, RNA-Seq sequences of alfalfa were aligned with the genomic sequences of Arabidopsis to predict the position of introns and develop ILP markers in alfalfa. A total of 693 putative ILPs were identified, and 502 ILP markers were successfully developed. Furthermore, 100 ILP markers exhibited relatively high levels of transferability to leguminous (40.0%–83.0%) and non-leguminous (21.0%–22.0%) species. Polymorphisms in 40 randomly selected MsILP markers were evaluated in 21 alfalfa accessions and collectively yielded 169 alleles with an average of 4.7 alleles per locus. The polymorphism information content (PIC) ranged from 0.15 to 0.87 with an average of 0.60, which indicated a high level of polymorphism in the MsILP markers. For the first time, we developed large-scale ILP markers in alfalfa and demonstrated their utility in transferability, which will be valuable for genetic relationship assessments, comparative genomic studies and marker-assisted breeding of leguminous and non-leguminous species.
