Microsatellite markers for Cariniana legalis (Lecythidaceae) and their transferability to C. estrellensis1


UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite primers were developed in the neotropical tree species Cariniana legalis (Lecythidaceae) to investigate its genetic diversity, mating system, and gene flow. • METHODS AND RESULTS We identified 96 clones containing 82 repeat motifs from a genomic library enriched for (CT)8 and (GT)8 motifs. Primer pairs… (More)
