Level of genetic differentiation affects relative performances of expressed sequence tag and genomic SSRs.


Microsatellites, also called simple sequence repeats (SSRs), are markers of choice to estimate relevant parameters for conservation genetics, such as migration rates, effective population size and kinship. Cross-amplification of SSRs is the simplest way to obtain sets of markers, and highly conserved SSRs have recently been developed from expressed sequence… (More)
