Advancements in plant genomics and genetics are crucial for breeding and cultivating crops resistant to pests, pathogens, and drought. Plant genetic analysis, based on genome sampling with informative genetic markers, is essential for studies of plant genetics, breeding, conservation, and evolution. Intron length polymorphic markers (ILPs) are useful markers for genetic diversity analysis, parentage analysis, gene mapping, and marker-assisted selection in plant genomes. They can be used for comprehensive studies on population genetics, gene flow, and evolutionary relationships within plant species. Integrating ILPs with other molecular markers can enhance the accuracy and efficiency of genetic mapping projects. Novel bioinformatics tools and standardized protocols for ILP marker development will be crucial for advancing plant genetic studies.
