Abstract

A total of 68 cyprinid microsatellites were screened for cross-species amplification in order to develop three PCR multiplex kits for the Eurasian minnow (Phoxinus phoxinus L.) and the gudgeon (Gobio gobio L.). The multiplex kits cluster 21 and 18 microsatellites for P. phoxinus and G. gobio, respectively. All loci were evaluated using ~80 individuals sampled from three distinct populations. By multiplexing the markers, we aim to decrease genotyping costs and increase time efficiency. These two microsatellite sets represent a valuable tool for ecological, evolutionary, conservation and management issues.
