Dear Colleagues, 

We would like to inform you of a new publication now available at Conservation Genetics Resources.

J.P. Torres-Florez; R. Hucke-Gaete; H. Rosenbaum & C.C. Figueroa. 2012. Isolation and Characterization of nine new polymorphic microsatellites loci for blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus).

Abstract Nine polymorphic microsatellite markers for
blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) are developed from,
genomic libraries. They are characterized using 32 B. musculus individuals from Southern and Northern Chile
population(s). The number of alleles per locus range from 5
to 9. The observed and expected heterozygosities range
from 0.438 to 0.906 and from 0.520 to 0.839, respectively.
None loci departed significantly from HWE (P \ 0.05).
These microsatellite loci are expected to contribute to
reveal blue whale population boundaries, taxonomic status
and to improve conservation priorities with the aim to
propose management units of B. musculus.
