Transposable element (TE) marker system was developed considering the useful properties of the transposable elements such as their large number in the animal and plant genomes, high rate of insertion polymorphism, and ease of detection. Various methods have been employed for developing a large number of TE markers in several crop plants for genomics studies. Here we describe some of these methods including the recent whole genome search. We also review the application of TE markers in molecular breeding.
