Characterization of tetra-nucleotide microsatellite loci in the ostrich (Struthio camelus)
MetadataShow full item record
1. Eleven polymorphic tetra-nucleotide microsatellite loci were identified in the ostrich (Struthio camelus) using a selective enrichment protocol. 2. The average number of alleles observed was 6.6 with an average heterozygosity of 0.4. 3. The population was found to be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and two of the loci had a greater than 95% probability of having null alleles. 4. These microsatellite loci will add to the existing pool of markers available for the ostrich and help to facilitate analysis of population structure and pedigree determination.
