Abstract

Eight microsatellite markers were developed
via pyrosequencing for the blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus
phillipsi). These microsatellite loci and microsatellite loci
from two cross species markers displayed two to four
alleles with an expected heterozygosity range between
0.2899 and 0.6268 and an observed heterozygosity between
0.2083 and 0.6667. The high level of polymorphisms
observed in the microsatellite markers indicates that they
can be used to strongly improve our knowledge of the
genetic structure and relatedness of these animals.
