Microsatellite loci (also known as simple sequence repeats [SSRs] or simple tandem repeats [STRs]) are regions of DNA that contain short (<6 bp) tandemly repeated sequences (Litt and Luty 1989; Edwards et al. 199 1; Jacob et al. 199 1). Much attention is currently being paid to the development of microsatellite loci because they display a number of properties of interest for genomic mapping, population genetic, and evolutionary studies (Terauchi and Konuma 1994). They occur in large numbers… CONTINUE READING
