Data from: ‘True’ null allele detection in microsatellite loci: a comparison of methods, assessment of difficulties, and survey of possible improvements

Michał J. Dąbrowski, Susanne Bornelöv, Marcin Kruczyk, Nicholas Baltzer & Jan Komorowski
Null alleles are alleles that for various reasons fail to amplify in a PCR assay. The presence of null alleles in microsatellite data is known to bias the genetic parameter estimates. Thus, efficient detection of null alleles is crucial, but the methods available for indirect null allele detection return inconsistent results. Here, our aim was to compare different methods for null allele detection, to explain their respective performance and to provide improvements. We applied several...
