Title: Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in Fraser fir (Abies fraseri)

Author: Josserand, S.A.; Potter, K.M.; Johnson, G.; Bowen, J.A.; Frampton, J.; Nelson, C.D.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: We describe the isolation and characterization of 14 microsatellite loci from Fraser fir (Abies fraseri). These markers originated from cloned inserts enriched for DNA sequences containing tandem di- and tri-nucleotide repeats. In total, 36 clones were selected, sequenced and evaluated. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers for 14 of these sequences consistently produced simple PCR profiles and were found to be polymorphic among 13 Fraser fir samples. In addition, more than half of these loci were found to amplify a wide range of samples from several Abies taxa.

Keywords: conservation genetics, fir, microsatellite DNA
