Eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were identified for Horsfield's bronze-cuckoo (Chalcites basalis). These include seven newly isolated loci from cuckoo genomic libraries enriched for GA and GAAA repeat-containing clones. These loci have a mean expected heterozygosity of 0.71, a mean number of alleles of 13.8 and a combined exclusion probability (one parent known) of 0.9999. Two loci (Cba01 and Cba07) showed a significant deficiency of heterozygotes and may therefore have null alleles,...[Show more]
