Data from: Number of alleles as a predictor of the relative assignment accuracy of STR and SNP baselines for chum salmon

Christian T. Smith & Lisa W. Seeb
Short tandem repeat (STR) markers, which exhibit many alleles per locus, are commonly used to assign fish to their populations of origin. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which have many technical advantages over STRs, typically exhibit only two alleles per locus. Simulation studies have indicated that number of independent alleles is a good predictor of accuracy of genetic markers for fishery applications. Extant STR baselines for salmon contain hundreds of alleles, and it has been extrapolated...
