A set of 37 microsatellite DNA markers for genetic diversity and structure analysis of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar populations
Abstract:Atlantic salmon Salmo salar microsatellite markers from a large database were analysed and selected with technical, economic and genetic criteria to provide an optimized set of polymorphic DNA markers for the analysis of the genetic diversity and the structure of anadromous Atlantic salmon populations. A set of 37 microsatellite markers was identified that are easy to use and provide a high level of differentiation power.
