Tiliqua rugosa microsatellites: isolation via enrichment and characterisation of loci for multiplex PCR in T. rugosa and the endangered T. adelaidensis

Gardner, Michael; Sanchez, J.J.; Dudaniec, Rachael Y.; Rheinberger, Leah; Smith, Annabel; Saint, Kathleen M.


We used an enrichment technique to isolate 18 novel di and tri microsatellites for the socially monogamous lizard Tiliqua rugosa. These loci were amplified in conjunction with previously described loci in two and three PCR multiplexes for T. rugosa and the endangered T. adelaidensis, respectively. The loci were highly polymorphic in both species, exhibiting between 2 and 32 alleles with observed heterozygosity ranging from 0.43 to 0.96. These markers will be useful for population-level analyses...[Show more]
