Abstract

Microsatellites, also known as short tandem repeats or simple sequence repeats, consist of tandemly repeated units, each between one and 10 base-pairs in length, such as (TG)n or (AAT)n. They are widely dispersed throughout eukaryotic genomes and are often highly polymorphic due to variation in the number of repeat units. The high information content of the genetic data yielded by microsatellite loci, and the advantage that material for microsatellite analysis can potentially be sampled non-invasively from free-living populations make these markers one of the molecular tools of choice for many population and biodiversity studies. In this study, the amplification of microsatellites and their use in genotype analysis is described.
