Crawford NG, Hagen C, Sahli HF, Stacy EA, Glenn TC. PERMANENT GENETIC RESOURCES: Fifteen polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci from Hawaii's Metrosideros polymorpha (Myrtaceae: Myrtales), a model species for ecology and evolution. Mol Ecol Resour. 2008;8(2):308-10.
We developed 15 polymorphic microsatellite loci from the Hawaiian tree Metrosideros polymorpha. These loci were screened against two varieties from several populations and from 23 individuals from one mid-elevation population on Hawaii Island. Loci were variable with the number of alleles per locus ranging from three to 24. Polymorphic information content ranged from 0. 222 to 0. 941, and observed heterozygosity ranged from 0. 261 to 0. 955.
