Development of nine polymorphic microsatellite loci in the squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis)

Microsatellite Letters


We designed nine polymorphic markers for the squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis), an arboreal marsupial in eastern Australia. These markers will assist in the management of isolated populations and the evaluation of wildlife corridors.
