  author={R. Kunkle and C. Reilly and S. C. Renn},
Microsatellites, or short sequence repeats, abound in most organisms and have proven useful for a range of genetic and genomic studies. Once primers have been created, they can be applied to populations or taxa that have diverged from the source taxon with varying degrees of success. We use PCR amplification, in a 96 well format, to determine the presence and absence of 46 microsatellite loci in 13 cichlid species. At least one primer set amplified product in each species tested, and some loci… CONTINUE READING
