To develop tools to analyse parasitic nematode population structures and the effects of selection pressure on the nematode population, we isolated and characterised 13 microsatellite markers of the nematode Haemonchus contortus. The density of CA/GT microsatellites, once in 575 kb, is lower than in mammals. Although the isolated CA/GT repeats were imperfect, the majority of the microsatellites were polymorphic in one or more populations. An extensive genetic diversity both within and between… CONTINUE READING
