Experts in microsatellite genotyping

Our microsatellite genotyping service will free you from this tiresome task

Microsatellite markers are widely used in population genetics and phylogeography, as well as in kinship analysis. Our microsatellite genotyping service will free you from this tiresome task that can be tedious and time-consuming. Therefore, you will be able to focus on the most important goals of your research project.

If microsatellite markers are not yet developed for your study species, please consider our microsatellite development service.

This graph shows the different steps of the AllGenetics' microsatellite genotyping service. Therefore it shows a typical workflow of a microsatellite genotyping experiment, including DNA isolation, amplification of the target loci, fragment analysis, and bioinformatic analysis.

Step 1

We isolate DNA from your samples. We have adapted different DNA isolation protocols, depending on the starting biological material.

Step 2

We amplify the microsatellite loci under study using fluorescently-labelled primer pairs.

Step 3

We run the labelled amplicons in the sequencer.

Step 4

We analyse the electropherograms generated and call the alleles observed at each locus.

For your convenience, we can carry out the entire project or only steps 2, 3, and 4.

What you receive

A report with a summary of the methods followed.
The raw electropherogram files, which will be delivered through our server.

The results of the bioinformatic analysis including a table with the alleles called at each locus in each individual. If you require additional analyses, please let us know and we will do our best to meet your needs.
At no additional cost, our project specialists will be available to you after project delivery and during the editorial process of your scientific articles. We offer up to five 60-min sessions per project, depending on the project size.
