European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) is one of the economically most important broadleaved tree species in Europe and has become a model for studying climate change effects on forests. Multiplex PCR of microsatellites is a fast and cost-effective technique allowing high-throughput genotyping. Here we present the procedure used to develop two multiplex kits (8-plexes) for European beech. We paid particular attention to quality control throughout all steps of the multiplex kits development (null… CONTINUE READING
