Abstract : Resistance to Cocoa Swollen Shoot Virus disease (CSSVD) is becoming an increasingly important criterion for selection of new cocoa cultivars in Côte-d'Ivoire, where the disease resurfaced since 2003. This virus can seriously affect the yield of trees with a loss of 25%, 1 year after infection, to around 100% 3 years after. In order to find tolerant plant material, 337 farm accessions have been collected on fields affected by CSSVD, according to the status of accessions potentially tolerant (APT) or susceptible (APS). Both phenotypic groups were genotyped using 30 microsatellite markers (SSR) in the presence of representative clones of the ten genetic groups of cocoa. This study revealed 214 alleles with the set of primer pairs used. The number of alleles per locus was between 3 and 16 with an average of 7.13 alleles per locus. The results showed a high contribution of genetic diversity within population (Hs = 0.51) to the total genetic diversity (Ht = 0.53) for the two studied groups. There was no significant difference between tolerant and susceptible groups (Fst = 0.05). These results suggest that APT could be a potential genetic reservoir for other traits of interest associated with virus resistance. The phylogenetic tree, as the STRUCTURE analysis of Ivorian cocoa population, showed a distribution of individuals following four groups marked by a high contribution of group 4 (Nanay, Maranon, Guiana) followed by group 2 (Criollo), and group 1 (Amelonado), and a lower contribution of group 3 (Iquitos, Purus, Nacional, Curaray, Contamana).
