  • Chinese giant salamander (Andrias davidianus) is a rare amphibian species in the world. Microsatellite markers are a promising tool for accurate estimation population structure and genetic diversity. In this paper, we isolated novel microsatellite marker for Chinese giant salamander using fast isolation by AFLP of sequences containing repeats (FIASCO) method. More than 50% sequences in 132 clones had repeat number over ten times with di or trinucleeotide repeat except of (GA)12. Seventy pairs… CONTINUE READING
