Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci from two inbreeding bark beetle species (Coccotrypes)

By P.R. Berg, D.A. Dawson, J. Pandhal, L.R. Kirkendall and T. Burke


We developed 14 microsatellite markers in Coccotrypes carpophagus and 14 in C. dactyliperda.\ud These loci will be used for studying genetic structure and the level of inbreeding in\ud populations in the Canary Islands and Madeira. As a result of long-term inbreeding,\ud genetic variability is relatively low in these bark beetle species. We found one to five alleles\ud per locus in 29 C. carpophagus and 41 C. dactyliperda from various localities. Eleven of the\ud markers developed for C. carpophagus amplified in C. dactyliperda and seven of the markers\ud developed for C. dactyliperda amplified in C. carpophagus
