Data from: Genome-wide gene-associated microsatellite markers for the model invasive ascidian, Ciona intestinalis species complex

Yaping Lin, Yiyong Chen, Wei Xiong & Aibin Zhan
The vase tunicate, Ciona intestinalis species complex, has become a good model for ecological and evolutionary studies, especially those focusing on microevolution associated with rapidly changing environments. However, genome-wide genetic markers are still lacking. Here we characterized a large set of genome-wide gene-associated microsatellite markers for C. intestinalis spA (= C. robusta). Bioinformatic analysis identified 4654 microsatellites from expressed sequence tags (ESTs), 2126 of which successfully assigned to chromosomes were selected for further analysis. Based...
