Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci for the Asian longhorned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis.


We describe the first isolation of SSR (simple sequence repeat) markers for Anoplophora glabripennis, a pest of forests in China and urban trees in the USA. Ten markers were developed using FIASCO (fast isolation by AFLP of sequences containing repeats) with an (AC)(17) probe, and five markers were identified in expressed sequence tags found on the NCBI… (More)
