- Fourteen primer pairs were designed from 47 sequences containing microsatellites isolated from agenomic library enriched for (GACA)₄ in Stegastes partitus. Seven of these were shown to be polymorphicand provided clean amplification products. These seven loci were further characterized using 38 individuals, yielding a range in number of alleles from 5 to 31 and observed and expected heterozygosity values rangingfrom 0.45-0.89 and 0.66-0.96 respectively. Six of seven loci conformed to Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.Successful amplification was also achieved in other Pomacentridae.
