Isolation and characterization of nine microsatellite loci in a Malagasy endemic rodent, Eliurus carletoni (Rodentia: Nesomyinae)

We developed microsatellite markers for the recently described forest rodent, Eliurus carletoni, from an enriched genomic library. Nine loci composed of four dinucleotide, one trinucleotide, one tetranucleotide and three compound repeats were isolated and characterized using two wild populations. One locus was found to be monomorphic. For the polymorphic… CONTINUE READING
