Description: After identifying 114 microsatellite loci from Choristoneura fumiferana expressed sequence tags, 87 loci were assayed in a panel of 11 wild-caught individuals, giving 29 polymorphic loci. Further analysis of 20 of these loci on 31 individuals collected from a single population in northern Minnesota identified 14 in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
Keywords: Spruce budworm, Expressed sequence tag, Microsatellite, Simple sequence repeat, Choristoneura fumiferana, Tortricidae
