microsatellite analyser (MSA): a platform independent analysis tool for large microsatellite data sets
In molecular ecology the analysis of large microsatellite data sets is becoming increasingly popular. Here we introduce a new software tool, which is specifically designed to facilitate the analysisExpand

PoPoolation: A Toolbox for Population Genetic Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Data from Pooled Individuals
Recent statistical analyses suggest that sequencing of pooled samples provides a cost effective approach to determine genome-wide population genetic parameters. Here we introduce PoPoolation, aExpand

Evolutionary dynamics of microsatellite DNA
Abstract. Within the past decade microsatellites have developed into one of the most popular genetic markers. Despite the widespread use of microsatellite analysis, an integral picture of theExpand

The evolution of molecular markers — just a matter of fashion?
In less than half a century, molecular markers have totally changed our view of nature, and in the process they have evolved themselves. However, all of the molecular methods developed over the yearsExpand

A microsatellite-based multilocus screen for the identification of local selective sweeps.
With the availability of completely sequenced genomes, multilocus scans of natural variability have become a feasible approach for the identification of genomic regions subjected to natural andExpand

Comparative evolutionary analysis of rDNA ITS regions in Drosophila.
The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the ribosomal DNA is generally considered to be under low functional constraint, and it is therefore often treated as a typical nonfunctional spacer sequence.Expand

A microsatellite variability screen for positive selection associated with the "out of Africa" habitat expansion of Drosophila melanogaster.
We report a "hitchhiking mapping" study in D. melanogaster, which searches for genomic regions with reduced variability. The study's aim was to identify selective sweeps associated with the "out ofExpand

Sequencing pools of individuals — mining genome-wide polymorphism data without big funding
The analysis of polymorphism data is becoming increasingly important as a complementary tool to classical genetic analyses. Nevertheless, despite plunging sequencing costs, genomic sequencing ofExpand
