Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellites in the rodent Gerbillus nigeriae.
The new generation 454 FLX Titanium pyrosequencing technology was used to isolate microsatellite loci in the rodent Gerbillus nigeriae, a species which distribution area increasedrecently in sub-saharan Africa. Seven hundred and thirty two loci containing microsatellite sequences were obtained. From these, a total of 80 were tested in order to retain 12polymorphic markers that may be genotyped in two panels. Polymorphism was studied in two
populations, one from Niger, and one from a recently invaded area in Senegal. Alleli diversity ranged from 2 to 13 alleles in Niger, and from 2 to 11 alleles in Senegal. These
microsatellite markers will be useful to describe the invasion pattern of this species,
associated with major climatic and environmental changes in Sahelian areas.
