Polymorphic Microsatellite Loci for Paternity Analysis in the Fiddler Crab Uca mjoebergi

Kinnear, Mark; Smith, Leon M. A; Maurer, Golo; Backwell, Patricia; Linde, Celeste


Microsatellite markers were developed for the fiddler crab Uca mjoebergi for use in paternity assignment. Five highly variable loci were found to amplify reliably in U. mjoebergi, although one locus exhibited evidence for the presence of null alleles, and two loci exhibited evidence of linkage. The number of alleles, expected heterozygosity and probability of paternity exclusion (P > 0.999) suggest that these markers when combined provide sufficient power to determine paternity by exclusion in...[Show more]
