Isolation and characterization of 29 polymorphic microsatellite markers for the endangered Atlantic goliath grouper (Epinephelus itajara), and the Pacific goliath grouper (E. quinquefasciatus)


We isolated 40 microsatellite markers for the endangered Atlantic, and Pacific goliath grouper, Epinephelus itajara and E. quinquefasciatus. Loci were characterized using samples of E. itajara (n = 52) and E. quinquefasciatus (n = 10). Twenty-nine loci were polymorphic. For E. itajara and E. quinquefasciatus, respectively, mean numbers of alleles per locus… (More)
