Twenty-nine human microsatellite primer pairs were screened for their utility in the cross-species amplification of baboon DNA derived from both blood and feces as part of a larger study to identify paternal half sisters in a population of wild baboons (Papio cynocephalus). Forty-one percent (12/29) of the human primers successfully amplified baboon DNA. Of these 12 primers, six amplified fragments that were both polymorphic and heterozygous (mean number of alleles = 6, mean heterozygosity = 87… CONTINUE READING
