Development of microsatellite markers and detection of genetic variation between Goniozus wasp populations.
Bottom Line: Neither G. nephantidis nor G. legneri were polymorphic within populations.However, there were six primer pairs that did show polymorphism between G. legneri populations that originated from different geographical areas within South America (Uruguay and Chile).One of the markers was subsequently used to provide unbiased assessment of primary sex ratio in G. legneri.

Mentions: Primers chosen in the annealing test were amplified on the ABI PCR machine at different temperatures according to their annealing test optima. The gel electrophoresis results were visualized using UV light. Some primers were rejected before capillary testing due to lack of amplification in an annealing test or, if they amplified, not displaying clear/discrete single bands on the gel. PCR products of primers 7 and 8 amplified from G. legneri are shown in Figure 2.
