New curation method for microsatellite markers improves population genetics analyses
Genetic markers are used for in modern population genetics/genomics to uncover the past neutral and selective history of population and species. Besides Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) obtained from whole genome data, microsatellites (or Short Tandem Repeats, SSR) have been common markers of choice in numerous population genetics studies of non-model species with large sample sizes . Microsatellites can be used to uncover and draw inference of the past population demography (e.g. expan...
