Microsatellite marker development has been greatly simplified by the use of high-throughput sequencing followed by in silico microsatellite detection and primer design. However, the selection of markers designed by the existing pipelines depends either on arbitrary criteria, or older studies on PCR success. Based on wet laboratory experiments, we have(More)
A total of 68 cyprinid microsatellites were screened for cross-species amplification in order to develop three PCR multiplex kits for the Eurasian minnow (Phoxinus phoxinus L.) and the gudgeon (Gobio gobio L.). The multiplex kits cluster 21 and 18 microsatellites for P. phoxinus and G. gobio, respectively. All loci were evaluated using ~80 individuals(More)
