Olive ridleys, one of the widely distributed marine turtle species has undergone declines in recent years due to multiple anthropogenic factors warranting conservation efforts for which assessment of genetic variability in existing populations become critical. Here we describe development of ten new microsatellite markers from a short sequence repeat-enriched partial genomic DNA library, which are found to be highly informative for genetic studies. Eight of these markers when tested on 83 olive… CONTINUE READING
