|Title:||Cost-Effective Microsatellite Markers for 'Banksia integrifolia' (Proteaceae)||Contributor(s):||Fatemi, Mohammad (author) ; Houliston, Gary J (author); Haddadchi, Azadeh (author); Gross, Caroline L (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Open Access:||Yes||DOI:||10.3732/apps.1200130||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/13978||Abstract:||• Premise of the study: Microsatellite markers were developed to assess the level of genetic variation and population structure in 'Banksia integrifolia', a widespread species endemic to eastern Australia. • Methods and Results: We used next-generation sequencing approaches to identify and develop 11 polymorphic microsatellite markers with perfect tri- and tetranucleotide repeats. We tested these markers with 71 specimens from three populations. Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.0 to 0.875 and 0.0 to 0.763, respectively. • Conclusions: The developed markers will be valuable for studies of the population structure, mating system, and selection of provenances for restoration projects involving 'B. integrifolia'.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Applications in Plant Sciences, 1(2), p. 1-3||Publisher:||Botanical Society of America||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||2168-0450||Field of Research (FOR):||050202 Conservation and Biodiversity||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||960805 Flora, Fauna and Biodiversity at Regional or Larger Scales||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 200
