Expressed sequence tags (ESTs) can be used to identify microsatellite markers. We developed 30 polymorphic microsatellite markers from 5053 ESTs of the Miichthys miiuy. Out of 123 EST derived microsatellites for which PCR primers were designed, 30 loci were polymorphic in 30 individuals from a single natural population with 2-13 alleles per locus. The observed and expected heterozygosities were from 0.1024 to 0.7917 and from 0.2732 to 0.8845, respectively. Nine loci deviated from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, and linkage disequilibrium was significant between 22 pairs of loci. These polymorphic microsatellite loci will be useful for genetic diversity analysis and molecule-assisted breeding for M. miiuy.

    Eleven microsatellite loci have been developed from Fagus longipetiolata and the loci were characterized for 21 individuals. All eleven loci were polymorphic, with 2-8 alleles and an average of 4.8 per locus. The observed (HO) and expected (HE) heterozygosities were 0.053-0.714 and 0.355-0.856,...

    We describe primers and PCR conditions to amplify nine new tetranucleotide loci and one new dinucleotide locus isolated from the strawberry poison frog (Oophaga pumilio). In 21 individuals from Costa Rica, the number of alleles ranged from 4 to 16, observed heterozygosities from 40 to 100%, and...

    Background: Microsatellites surrounding functionally important candidate genes or quantitative trait loci have received attention as proxy measures of polymorphism level at the candidate loci themselves. In cattle, selection for economically important traits is a long-term strategy and it has...

    From a study of 28 human populations, linkage disequilibrium (LD) between ABO and Rh blood group loci in human genome were estimated using two different statistic of population genetics viz. D and Q. In general, the haplotypes iRh+ and iRh- were, on average, 2 to 3-fold and 1.1 to 1.8-fold more...

    The present study reports isolation and characterization of 21 polymorphic microsatellite markers developed from Lycium chinense Mill. These markers produced a total of 86 alleles across 30 L. chinense accessions, with an average of 4.1 alleles per locus. Values for observed heterozygosity and...

    Eight new polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the edible dormouse (Glis glis). All loci were polymorphic in the 70 individuals tested. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 6, with a mean of 4. Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.10 to...
