Microsatellite Marker Development

Microsatellite Marker Development
Use microsatellite marker development to conduct a study in the field of population genetics, conservation biology or evolutionary biology with no microsatellite markers available for your species of interest.
To immediately start with your study discover our fast marker development by next generation sequencing service. Microsatellite Markers are the most popular and versatile genetic markers with many applications.


Considerations before starting a microsatellite marker development:

  • Confirmed genus species of my species of interest?
  • Parasites: Contamination with host DNA?
  • Haploid, diploid or polyploid organism of interest?

Let us guide you – from DNA isolation to genotyping

Examples of microsatellite marker development:

  • Genetic identification of individuals
  • Varietal authenticity testing
  • Paternity testing
  • Kinship analysis

Applications related to microsatellite marker development:

  • Resequencing


The development of DNA-based markers for any kind of plant, fungal or animal species via NGS approaches will be performed by ecogenics. ecogenics is a subsidiary of Microsynth AG and has put its focus on microsatellite marker development and related genotyping projects. Since 2001 many ecologists, breeders, botanists and zoologists outsource DNA work in this area to ecogenics.
