The RH10K map present 1299* Microsatellites [ Simple Tandem Repeat : di-, tri-, tetra- and pentanucleotides ]
included within 1054 gene-marker sequences that have been identified by screening the 10,000 marker
sequences using the sputnik program [ reference ] .
A subset of 511 microsatellites selected for their high potential of polymorphism based on their highly repeated motif number is available
and can be retrieved by using the select marker informativity query form option below.
Comparisons of the 511 microsatellite-containing marker sequences between the 1.5x genomic sequence
from TIGR (Poodle) and the 7x sequence assembly from the BROAD institute (Boxer) revealed 125 (25%) size
polymorphisms that differ by the number of tandem repeat copy number.
