Microsatellite DNA markers for the snow vole (Chionomys nivalis)


Wandeler, P; Ravaioli, S R; Bucher, T B (2008). Microsatellite DNA markers for the snow vole (Chionomys nivalis). Molecular Ecology Resources, 8(3):637-639.

Abstract

A total of 14 dinucleotide microsatellite loci were characterized in the snow vole (Chionomys nivalis). Allelic polymorphism across all loci and 28 individuals representing a single population in the Swiss Alps was high (mean = 10.1 alleles). No significant linkage disequilibrium between pairs of loci and no departure from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium were found. These loci will be useful for describing mating systems and population structure and to investigate the genetic consequences of a species living in a highly fragmented habitat.
