Multiplex design software

Hi all,

A new program to help design PCR multiplexes has just been released.
Details here: http://www.multiplexmanager.com/

Be interesting to know how people get on with it.

New paper on bird cross-species microsatellite amplification

Hi all,

Craig Primmer’s group have just published a nice paper on cross-species amplification of 86 zebra finch EST-microsatellites.
Details are here: http://jhered.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/99/6/688

I know that some of you will be interested in these markers.
The appendix lists the GenBank IDs of all markers tested, so you should be able to compare their findings with the loci described in our BMC Genomics 2007 paper as well as with any loci you have tested (there will almost certainly be overlap of loci).
