Characterization of thirteen microsatellite markers in river and brook lampreys (Lampetra fluviatilis and L-planeri)
Conservation Genetics Resources
We describe the development based on 454 pyrosequencing technology of thirteen microsatellite markers for two closely related species of lamprey: Lampetra fluviatilis and L. planeri. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 5 in L. fluviatilis and from 2 to 6 in L. planeri. Gene diversity ranged from 0.062 to 0.718 in L. fluviatilis and from 0.322 to 0.677 in L. planeri. These markers will be helpful to study population genetic structure of both species and resolve their taxonomic status as separate species or ecotypes of a single species.
