Data from: Mining microsatellite markers from public expressed sequence tags databases for the study of threatened plants

Lua Lopez, Rodolfo Barreiro, Markus Fischer & Marcus A. Koch
Background: Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs) are widely used in population genetic studies but their classical development is costly and time-consuming. The ever-increasing available DNA datasets generated by high-throughput techniques offer an inexpensive alternative for SSRs discovery. Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) have been widely used as SSR source for plants of economic relevance but their application to non-model species is still modest. Methods: Here, we explored the use of publicly available ESTs (GenBank at the National...
